Jet Propulsion Laboratory Archives: About

Guide for accessing all types of materials in the JPL Archives.

The primary mission of the JPL Archives is to document the rich organizational, mission, and cultural histories of the institution by identifying, collecting, preserving, and making available primary source materials that have long-term value for research by users at JPL/Caltech/NASA and the wider public. This supports the JPL mission to promote and “inspire the next generation of explorers, scientists, and engineers.”

Research services are provided, including assistance with locating historical records and answering questions related to JPL’s projects and activities.
