Research Guides From NAR's Library & Archives

The National Association of REALTORS® Archives produces Research Guides with the goal of helping members, scholars, and staff locate information held in the Archives. Each Guide covers one series of records, providing historical background and context on how the materials relate to NAR as a whole. In addition, the Guides contain content lists, brief notes about the materials, and box locations within the Archives.

Researchers can use these Guides to gain a better understanding of the materials and quickly decide which records may be most relevant to their research.

Five Research Guides are currently available:

Qualified researchers are also welcome to visit the NAR Archives by appointment only. 

For research assistance or questions about the Archives, please email or call 800-874-6500.
