The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a strategic goal to Make Access Happen. In pursuit of that goal, NARA has digitized and provided online over 90 million pages of records and is on track to provide access to 500 million digital copies by the end of FY2024. As the haystack grows, the needles become more difficult to find. NARA is exploring numerous ways to improve discovery of the records, including the development of "next-generation finding aids." These finding aids provide digital paths into the records by using NARA's API and leveraging the cataloging work performed by NARA staff over the last 20 years. This discussion will review our recently launched project, the Record Group Explorer, discuss lessons learned, and provide an overview of additional access projects underway for FY 20. There will be time included for audience discussion.
