  • The Division of Archives & Records Management has two principal functions.  One function is to assist state agencies with the efficient and proper management of their records, and in conjunction with that service, provide storage space for their less active records.  Our second function is to preserve documentation of the history of New Hampshire state government institutions, and work to make them available to the public in as efficient a manner as possible.
