The National Archives of Bangladesh (NAB) are based in Dhaka and contain 225,000 volumes of documents in addition to books, microfilm rolls and newspaper clippings.[1] The archives were founded in 1973 by the government of Bangladesh and are administered by the Directorate of National Archives and Libraries. Located in a rented building near the campus of Dhaka University until 1985, the collections are now housed in a purpose-built part of the National Library of Bangladesh complex in Sher-e-Bangla Nagar.[2]
