Archives and Records Management
We develop and carry out citywide policy and procedures for the management of City government records. Our work encourages people to access and use Boston’s archival records.
The records we keep enable people to inspect what Boston municipal government has done, allow officials and agencies to review their actions, and help citizens hold government accountable. Through our work, we guarantee ready access to essential evidence that documents the rights of citizens, the actions of municipal officials, and Boston's historical municipal experience.
We digitized photos from Mayor Collins's administration, but we need your help identifying the people and places in the photos.
We also digitized a collection of photos from Mayor Flynn's administration, but need your help identifying everyone.
We have a crowd-sourced archive of pictures, videos, and stories related to the Boston Marathon bombing.
