Mission: The Harry S. Truman Library Institute, a 501(c)(3) organization is dedicated to the preservation, advancement, and outreach activities of the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum, one of our nation''s 13 presidential libraries overseen by the National Archives and Records Administration.  Together with its public partner, the Truman Library Institute preserves the enduring legacy of America''s 33rd president to enrich the public''s understanding of history, the presidency, public policy and citizenship. 
Programs: President Truman knew that the health of our democracy is fundamentally tied to our understanding of history and government. Yet, recent studies show that students are failing to grasp the significance of people, places and events in history. The programs and resources offered by the Truman Library Institute seek to significantly raise the level of student achievement in this vital area of study, and to support teachers’ mastery of their subject areas with access to leading scholars, primary source materials, and best practices in teaching. Beyond the classroom, these programs inspire young people to seek lives of engaged service and purpose, as modeled by America’s 33rd president.The following educational programs are made possible by contributions to the Truman Library Institute: The White House Decision CenterMuseum ToursTruman Footlocker programNational History DayOnline Archival AccessTeacher Institutes and WorkshopsInternship Program
