Advisory Services

The State Archives has developed a variety of records management and historical records services to help governments, regional organizations, businesses, ethnic and racial groups, libraries, archives and museums respond to the challenge of managing records and making them available.

Local Governments and State Agencies

Knowledgeable, experienced records management and historical records professionals are based in Albany and in nine regional offices around the state. A Regional Advisory Officer, who acts as a free consultant, trainer, and technical advisor to local governments and state agencies, manages each region.
