State Heritage/ Records Management

17 NASS members oversee their state’s archives and all members function in some capacity as record keepers for their state.

The NASS State Heritage Committee provides a forum for members to share information and practices regarding state heritage programs and venues, including: state archives, museums, libraries, historical sites and state records. Digital preservation of documents is also a key issue for this body. Members work with the Council of State Archivists (CoSA), Society of American Archivists (SAA) and the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators (NAGARA), as well as the Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Below you can find resources and information regarding state archives and/or the issue of records management.
