Wireless internet is now available for researchers who use our Washington, DC & College Park, MD facilities. This service is completely free and available to registered researchers.
On Monday, we launched the redesigned Archives.gov. With your help, we have made it easier for researchers, Vet, teachers, and visitors to find the information they are looking for. This summer, you voted and we listened.
The Redesigned Archives.gov
Later this month,Â we will launch Online Public Access, a prototype for a new search & display in the research section of Archives.gov. We want to encourage you to experience the new search interface & send your feedback to email@example.com.
Coming Soon: Online Public Access
This month, we will also release the first National Archives’ mobile application called “Today’s Document,” based on the popular feature on Archives.gov.

& in January, NARA staff will begin to use an internal collaboration platform. This platform will use social-media based software to enable staff to better communicate, collaborate, & build communities.
We will see even more changes in this coming year.
Our Transformation Launch Team is engaging staff in an agency-wide reorganization & an identifcation of core values. The team is also working on substantial action items that will have direct impact on our staff & build momentum for change within our agency. I’m pleased to see so many staff participating & providing thoughtful comments on how to improve our agency.
I'm feel confident that these changes will enrich our organizational culture, as well as improve our ability to serve you efficiently and effectively.
