Established in 1975, the Council of State Historical Coordinators (COSHRC) is a national organization comprising the various individuals who serve as state historical records coordinators and their deputies. From the homepage, visitors and interested parties can learn about the various collections of each state historical records agency. The site also provides important material on the COSHRC's position on timely matters, such as the statement regarding the sale of historical public records on eBay and policy statements in support of state archives. Visitors to the site can also learn about Archives Week, which happens once a year and is designed to inform the public about what archivists do and why their work is valuable. Another section of note is the Archives Resource Center, which features important online material on Web-based archival training, educational material for teaching with primary sources, and listings of educational programs offered by each individual state archive center.
