Subject: You Can Submit Your Comment on NARA Draft Policy

Message Detail:
Got the following info from genljejohnston of Florida and wanted to pass it along:


"The National Archives are to start digitizing their collection. The projects objectives are to provide online access to an increased number of holdings and enhance preservation of records by reducing wear and tear on the originals. Once copied digitally, records may be relocated to less expensive archival storage locations. Clear information is supposed to be provided about how the records may be located and used.

"These include official military personnel files for millions of veterans, federal population census records from 1790 through 1930.

"Mathew Brady Civil War photographs, ship passenger arrival lists and naturalization documents, Freedmen's Bureau materials, case files documenting more than 10 million land entries and American Indian School records.

"The plan is on line at www.archives.gov/about/plans-reports/strategic-plan

"Go to www.archives.gov/comment/digitizing-plan.html to view the draft plan for the project.

"You can give your input by clicking "Comment on Draft Policy" to the left of the screen under "Your Voice Matters" Comments are due by November 9th. 2007."

Thought you'd all like to know,
Walt
