§57.09 of the NYS Arts and Cultural Affairs Law requires all appointed Local Government Historians to “make an annual report, in the month of January, to the local appointing officer or officers and to the state historian of the work which has been accomplished during the preceding year.”
New York State Historian Devin Lander and the Office of State History have made online submission of the required report available to allow historians to more easily make their required report via the web.
Submitting the form will automatically generate a report to the State Historian and the submitting historian which can be shared with local appointing officers. According to the State Historian, the data collected will enable the compilation of a “statistical abstract of the field, which will be shared annually.”
The online submission form for local historians can be found here.
