State Historical Records Advisory Board

Who We Are

The Wyoming State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) consists of public officials and private citizens who believe in the importance of preserving our state's records and in making them available for the public.

We work with state and local governments, businesses and organizations, and individuals to provide information, technical assistance and resources. The Wyoming SHRAB is one of many similar organizations in existence nationwide, supported by and operating in cooperation with the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), a branch of the National Archives.
