Traveling Archivist Program

The Traveling Archivist Program (TAP) was created with funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commision and is now administration by the State Archives of North Carolina.

The purpose of TAP is to help repositories improve the preservation of and access of archival collections. Repositories include historical and genealogical societies; public libraries; the archives of colleges, hospitals, and other organizations; historic houses and sites, museums; and other publicly-accessible institutions that hold materials documenting the state's history and culture.
