"On April 1, 1985, the effective date of the National Archives and Records Act of 1984, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) became an independent agency. In 2005, NARA observed its 20th anniversary of independence with programs on NARA’s past, present, and future."

"The Federal Government and the people depend on the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to protect and preserve for future use trustworthy records that protect the rights of citizens and the Government. We hold in trust the records that confer citizenship and benefits, attest to court proceedings, and document service to our nation. From filmmaker to veteran, next-of-kin to patent holder, our customers confidently turn to us knowing the records we maintain are authentic and available. Government agencies also depend on NARA’s records management assistance and guidance to help them more effectively carry out their mission."
