What is ALIC?
The Archives Library Information Center (ALIC) is more than a traditional
library. Recognizing that our customers no longer expect to work
within the walls of a library, these pages are designed to provide NARA
staff and researchers nationwide with convenient access to content beyond the
physical holdings of our two traditional libraries. ALIC provides access to information on
American history and government, archival administration, information management, and government
documents to NARA staff, archives and records management professionals, and the general public.
Our physical library location is in the
National Archives Building in College Park, MD.
