JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen National Archives (USA) Report on Alternate Models for Presidental Library System #general


Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

Congressional legislation enacted in 2008 required the National Archives
(USA) to submit a report to Congress on alternate models for Presidential
archival depositories. There are three areas the report was to address:
Reducing the financial burden on the Federal Government ;
Improving the preservation of Presidential records, and
Reducing the delay in public access to all Presidential records.
The report proposes 5 models for Congress' consideration.

To read the 72 page report see:

MODERATOR NOTE: Although not directly related to Jewish genealogy, this
notice is being posted because new models for archival preservation will
probably eventually be reflected throughout the archival community.
