The National Recovery Administration was established through Executive Order 6173 on June 16, 1933. As part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal series of regulations intended to respond to relief, reform, and recovery from the Great Depression, the National Recovery Administration was tasked with developing and administrating an industrial code system that would enact controls over industrial pricing, production, trade practices, and labor relations as part of the National Industrial Recovery Act, Public Law 73-67 and Statutes at Large Volume 48 (1933-1934) § 195. Codes established by the NRA relate to policies across manufacturing and industry trades such as lumber, forestry, cotton, fur, sewing, tools, paper, cleaning, clay, jewelry, gloves, alloys, motion pictures, silk, paint, clothing, barber shops, beauty, rubber, and more from 1933-1936.
As part of a partnership with the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL), University of Florida’s George A. Smathers Libraries seeks to provide workable solutions to address the increasing cost of managing, preserving, and providing access to large collections of Federal government publications through the creation of several comprehensive collections, known as "Centers of Excellence" (COE). University of Florida’s COE collections includes over a thousand titles of National Recovery Administration publications which, through partnership with GPO, are now publicly available in govinfo. To view other COE collections at the University of Florida’s George A. Smathers’ libraries are available online in University of Florida Digital Collections. Digitized National Recovery Administration publications have been shared with GPO from UFL through a digital content contributor partnership.
