The OIEP Advantage: National Archives

The official National Archives of the United States Government are available at a state-of-the-art facility located right next to the University of Maryland.

This means that OIEP-sponsored students and researchers enjoy almost on the spot access to a vast repository of records from key U.S. departments such as State, Justice, Treasury, Interior, Labor, Commerce, Energy, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, Education, Health and Human Services, and Transportation.

Military records generated by the Department of Defense and its predecessor, the War Department, are also available at the Archives facility in College Park, Maryland.

Archive records are remarkably diverse, appearing in textual, cartographic, electronic, film, video, sound, and photographic formats.
