About This Blog

Records Express is the official blog of the Office of the Chief Records Office (OCRO)  at the National Archives. The OCRO provides records management leadership, oversight, guidance, and service to Federal agencies so they will appropriately manage their records for as long as needed to carry out their mission. As a result of that work, NARA can properly preserve and provide access to records that document the national experience and protect legal rights.

This blog is being launched in the spirit of openness and transparency. We expect to highlight NARA’s guidance, talk about upcoming events, and discuss how the OCRO is working with our agency partners to improve records management in the Federal government.

We encourage our readers to comment on postings. Comments will be moderated according to NARA’s comment and posting policy.
