Council of State Archivists (CoSA)

The Archives Resource Center (ARC) was developed in response to the call for a Web-based information clearinghouse, which was the highest priority in the Action Agenda developed at the National Forum on Archival Continuing Education (NFACE).


Program resources developed by and for
state archives and records programs

The new CoSA Resource Center launched in August 2010

We have imported all of the links previously contained in the Archives Resource Center in support of the IPER webinars.
