Vermont Historical Records Advisory Board
The purpose of the Vermont Historical Records Advisory Board (VHRAB) is to support the identification, preservation, and use of records with continuing or historical value in Vermont.
To fulfill its purpose, VHRAB’s specific goals are to:
- Help Vermonters obtain the knowledge and resources necessary to identify, preserve, and make accessible historical records.
- Facilitate cooperation and communication among historical record repositories and information agencies within the state.
- Enhance an understanding of the Vermont experience through the use of historical records.
- Serve as a liaison with the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for statewide planning, as well as grant promotion and review.
To these ends, VHRAB supports workshops, training opportunities, conferences, and records projects throughout Vermont. It also promotes grant opportunities available through the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).
