National Archives Catalog: HALO’s Tagging Mission[edit]

NARA’s Hispanic and Latino Organization (HALO) Employee Affinity Group is currently working on a tagging mission that tags Hispanic and Latino records found within NARA’s online catalog. The tag lag_2017 is used for records relating to Latin American countries, US/Latin American policy, etc. The tag lax_2017 is used for records relating to Hispanics and Latinos living in the United States. Additionally records relating to Puerto Rico are tagged with prg_2013.

When using NARA’s online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/ you can type in any of the three tags mentioned above into the search bar to see the related records. This tagging mission is incomplete but can give you a sample of some of NARA’s records relating to Hispanic and Latino Heritage.
