The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is responsible for overseeing the management of the records of the Federal Government. NARA ensures, for the Citizen and the Public Servant, for the President and the Congress and the Courts, ready access to essential evidence that documents the rights of American citizens, the actions of Federal officials, and the national experience.
The National Archives and Records Administration was established by act of October 19, 1984 (44 U.S. Code 2101 et seq.), effective April 1, 1985, as an independent agency in the executive branch of the Government--it is the successor agency to the National Archives Establishment, which was initiated in 1934.
