Who We Are

nhprclogo-th

 

The Wyoming State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) promotes the identification, preservation and dissemination of Wyoming’s historical records. To accomplish this mission, the Board awards grants and sponsors workshops for archives, libraries, museums, and others throughout the state that collect, manage, and preserve historical records.  The SHRAB’s activities are made possible by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

The Wyoming 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.
