People in each era examine the past for guidance, reinterpret its lessons in light of their own needs and perceptions, and act, thereby creating a record for those who follow. The State Archives is a key component in this examination by safeguarding state government records of enduring value based upon historical, legal, administrative, fiscal, and operational values. As the institutional memory of Nevada government, the State Archives identifies, preserves and makes available information that enables all citizens to better understand how public policy evolved from the past, governs the present, and affects the future.
