The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) preserves the permanently valuable records of the United States federal government, ensuring that people can access and learn from our documentary heritage. In the late 1970s, the National Archives pioneered a program to provide educators and students with opportunities to teach with and learn from primary sources documents.

NARA is pleased to be an early collaborator in the Learning Registry to make methods and materials for integrating documents into classroom instruction even more widely available. In preparation for a complete connection to the Registry, information about a selection of our resources have been placed into the Registry by way of our partner site–Butte County Office of Education’s Brokers of Expertise. We look forward to continuing our collaboration!
