Records Access Alert Postings During September 2015 #general
Jan Meisels Allen
On October 2 I posted about the change in my posting relevant to pending
legislation and regulations. There is no change regarding my final
legislative and regulatory postings. Every month I will be posting a
listing of the IAJGS Records Access Alert topics >from the previous month
for you to see the variety of issues -- some were posted on this
discussion group as they were final edicts, but advocacy, and pending
legislation and regulations were not on the discussion group -- all
postings are included below. Any postings that had a time limit for
access, such as free access that has expired are not included below.
To be on top of what is happening I encourage to register for the
Records Access Alerts to receive the information in a timely manner.
