The US Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has scheduled a
Business Meeting for Wednesday, October 28th at 10 AM. They have scheduled a vote
on David Ferriero's nomination at US Archivist at that meeting. Once voted out of
Committee, the nomination has to be voted on by the full Senate. That will likely
happen by unanimous consent at the conclusion of Senate business one evening. The
Committee staff hopes to get full Senate action sometime this week, although it
could slip until next week.

Mr. Ferriero currently serves as the Andrew W. Mellon Director of the New York
Public Libraries Previously he was the Rita DiGiallonardo Holloway University
Librarian and Vice Provost for Library Affairs at Duke University.
