The National Archives’ new online catalog is set to launch on Monday, November 21st, replacing the legacy Catalog at catalog.archives.gov. The new Catalog focuses on scalability and in the next few years is expected to grow to 500 million digitized pages.
New back-end enhancements provide an improved search experience which makes it easier and more intuitive.
This redesigned Catalog is the result of a two-year agile development process, focusing on user research and testing.
Login.gov is a service that offers secure and private online access to many government programs, such as federal benefits, services and applications. With a login.gov account, you can sign into multiple government websites with the same email address and password. Account management (password reset, updating email address functions) is all done through login.gov.
