Research Services Washington DC Accessioning Web Page

by on February 12, 2013


We are happy to announce a new on-line presence for the Washington DC area accessioning staff:  http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/accessioning/.  The accessioning staff has created this robust and informative resource as a hub for information about transferring permanent Federal records to NARA. Staff consulted other NARA units including the National Declassification Center, FOIA and Special Access, research room staff, as well as Federal agency records management personnel to identify areas of interest.

This new web page provides a general overview for agencies on the transfer and accession processes into Textual, Special Media, and Electronic Media archival units in the DC area. There is also information concerning the transfer of records using ERA, the transfer of Federal Records Center records, the transfer of electronic and special media format records, and access to accessioned records by agencies.

Accessioning staff will continue to add content on a regular basis. Topics for future updates include:  donations, box & folder list examples, NARA accessioning procedures for textual transfers (both direct offers and the annual move), as well as transferring microforms.  Content feedback and suggestions are welcome by leaving a comment here or by sending a message directly to the accessioning staff by email at A2accessions@nara.gov.

Thank you for creating the Accessioning website. As a former NARA employee and a current Records Officer, I think making this information easily accessible is invaluable.
I would request that you include the names and contact information of the accessioning staff assigned to various agencies and/or media on this website.
Thanks,
Ryan

What a good idea! This looks like a great resource.

Will information be added to guide agency offices who need to accession in other parts of the country?
