Vermont Historical Records Program

The mission of the Vermont Historical Records Program (VHRP) is to improve public access to and engagement with Vermont historical records and to encourage and facilitate collaborative efforts among Vermont historical records repositories.  

VHRP Goals

  1. Ensuring repositories are in communication with information professionals knowledgeable in archival functions, processes, and documentation;
  2. Facilitating the processing of Vermont repositories’ historical records in a meaningful manner consistent with archival principles and practices to ensure the records’ authenticity and integrity while promoting their accessibility and use;
  3. Preparing presentations, articles, guides, finding aids, and related methods of outreach for repositories to provide background and additional information about Vermont’s historical records;
  4. Increasing participation in existing historical records programming and outreach initiatives and proposing new projects; and
  5. Providing a technical assistance program for repositories that is continuously improving and meets or exceeds public demands and expectations.

To meet these goals, VHRAB and the VHRP Director focus on several services for Vermont historical record repositories, particularly Vermont’s historical societies and museums.  Services include workshops and training as well as site visits.  

VHRP was started in May 2017 as a program of the Vermont State Historical Records Advisory Board (VHRAB) with funding from Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).
