NARA -- Tag, You’re It!


The NARA Online Public Access prototype (OPA) just got an exciting new feature — tagging!   As you search the catalog, we now invite you to tag any archival description, as well as person and organization name records, with the keywords or labels that are meaningful to you.  Our hope is that crowdsourcing tags will enhance the content of our online catalog and help you find the information you seek more quickly.

Ready to give it a try?

To begin adding tags, visit OPA’s registration page and register by entering your preferred username, email address, and password.   Log in, run a search, and look for the “Add Tag” box on the left side of the screen.  Start tagging!
