Mission, Vision, & Goals


It is the mission of the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) to provide, protect, promote, and preserve Vermont public records, in collaboration with other public agencies, for the benefit of the public we collectively serve.


It is our vision that Vermont public records, the cornerstone of government transparency and a knowledgeable and informed populace, are recognized and managed as public assets.


  1. The public has access to authentic and reliable records for as long as needed to protect interests and to assure government accountability.

  2. Public agencies have the tools and resources necessary to manage their records and information in an effective and efficient manner.

  3. Records of continuing value are preserved and accessible to current and future generations.

  4. Low-cost, secure repositories for public records, regardless of format, are available at an enterprise and statewide level.
