Register for VCRIS (Pre-Screening)

Pre-screening is required for new organizations only. For renewals, submit requests through VCRIS.

Considerations before you complete this form:

Most VCRIS licenses are associated with fees for access. Our Complimentary Access Policy describes qualifying organization and use types. Access is available for free in-person at DHR Archives. The DHR Archives Search Service may be more cost-effective for infrequent researchers.

Archaeological access is provided to qualified applicants only due to data sensitivity. If your organization needs to complete a records search but does not meet qualifications, you may alternately visit DHR Archives or order an Archives Search.
