The National Recording Registry is a list of sound recordings that "are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States". The registry was established by the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000, which created the National Recording Preservation Board, whose members are appointed by the Librarian of Congress. The recordings preserved in the United States National Recording Registry form a registry of recordings selected yearly by the National Recording Preservation Board for preservation in the Library of Congressmarker.

The legislative intent of the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000 was to develop a national program to guard America's sound recording heritage. The Act resulted in the formations of the National Recording Registry, The National Recording Preservation Board and a fund-raising foundation to aid their efforts. The act established the Registry specifically for the purpose of maintaining and preserving sound recordings and collections of sound recordings that are culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant. Beginning in 2002, the National Recording Preservation Board began selecting nominated recordings each year to be preserved.

The first four yearly lists included 50 selections. However, since 2006, 25 recordings have been selected annually. Thus, a total of 250 recordings have been preserved in the Registry as of 2008. Each year, open nominations are accepted until July 1 for inclusion in that year's list of selections to be announced the following spring. Thus, nominations for the 2008 list to be announced in the spring of 2009 had to be submitted by July 1, 2008 although nominations are accepted year round. Nominations are made in a variety of catagories including: blues, classical, comedy/novelty, country/bluegrass, documentary/broadcast/spoken word, and pop (pre-1955 and post-1955), and others.

Each yearly list has often included a few recordings that have also been selected for inclusion in the holdings of the National Archivesmarker' audiovisual collection. Those recordings on the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry that are of a political nature will tend to overlap with the audiovisual collection of the National Archives. The list shows overlapping items and whether the National Archives has an original or a copy of the recording.



Selection criteria

The criteria for selection are as follows:

  • Recordings selected for the National Recording Registry are those that are culturally, historically or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.
  • For the purposes of recording selection, "sound recordings" are defined as works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds, but not including the sound component of a moving image work, unless it is available as an autonomous sound recording or is the only extant component of the work.
  • Recordings may be a single item or group of related items; published or unpublished; and may contain music, non-music, spoken word, or broadcast sound.
  • Recordings will not be considered for inclusion into the National Recording Registry if no copy of the recording exists.
  • No recording should be denied inclusion into the National Recording Registry because that recording has already been preserved.
  • No recording is eligible for inclusion into the National Recording Registry until ten years after the recording's creation.
