NAGARA Resource Library

The NAGARA Resource Library, a membership benefit introduced in March 2017, provides members of NAGARA free access to an ever-growing collection of valuable resources intended to benefit and support government archivists and records managers successfully perform their work.

NAGARA's Professional Development and Professional Content Subcommittees are always open to ideas from members on the types of resources they would like to see included in the Resource Library. If you have a source you rely on often, a sample form or policy you’d like to share, or an idea for how we can improve the library, or even if you spot a broken link, let us know by filling out this online form.

Below is a list of resource categories contained in the NAGARA Resource Library. If you are a member of NAGARA, please be sure to login to the website to see and access each available resource. Not a NAGARA member? We invite you to JOIN today and begin benefiting from all NAGARA offers.
