ACTION: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is revising our digitization strategy and we are soliciting public comments on the proposed draft. You may access the draft strategy document at http:// www.archives.gov/digitization/ strategy.html. NARA identifies, preserves, and provides access to the Federal Government’s vast holdings of over 12 billion pages of archival materials, the majority of which currently exist only in analog or paper form. We previously issued a digitization strategy in May 2008, and it helped facilitate public access to more than 230 million digital images of analog records. We’re proposing changes to that strategy to enable more digitization going forward. DATES: Submit comments on or before November 17, 2014 to be assured of consideration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA is updating its digitization strategy, last issued in 2008, for several reasons. Since 2008, there have been rapid developments in areas of technology and collaboration that have changed the landscape of what is possible, expanding our options for collaboration with other organizations and for faster or more accessible digitization techniques for sometimes-delicate archival documents. These developments have also changed how people make use of documents and information, and their expectations about how they should be able to access them. In recognition of these changes SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00116 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62207 and the need to make even more of NARA’s vast and diverse range of permanent records available to people across the country, we issued a new agency Strategic Plan in March 2014, with an even greater emphasis on digitization. As a result of the rapid developments, changes in peoples’ use and access expectations, and NARA’s increased emphasis on digitization, we need to revise the 2008 digitization strategy. The proposed revisions signal key shifts in approach to digitization at NARA, including expansion of the variety and types of partnerships with institutions and organizations, greater emphasis on public access throughout internal agency digitization work processes, and promotion of public engagement in the digitization of NARA records. We welcome your comments on the proposed strategy. Dated: October 9, 2014. David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States.

    NARA identifies, preserves, and provides access to the Federal 
Government's vast holdings of over 12 billion pages of archival 
materials, the majority of which currently exist only in analog or 
paper form. We previously issued a digitization strategy in May 2008, 
and it helped facilitate public access to more than 230 million digital 
images of analog records. We're proposing changes to that strategy to 
enable more digitization going forward.

DATES: Submit comments on or before November 17, 2014 to be assured of 
consideration.

ADDRESSES: Send comments by email to digitization@nara.gov, 
regulations_comments@nara.gov, or post comments on the NARA blog post 
at http://blogs.archives.gov/online-public-access/?p=9283.

strategy, contact Markus Most by telephone at 301-837-1643, by email at

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA is updating its digitization strategy, 
last issued in 2008, for several reasons. Since 2008, there have been 
rapid developments in areas of technology and collaboration that have

collaboration with other organizations and for faster or more 
accessible digitization techniques for sometimes-delicate archival 
documents. These developments have also changed how people make use of 
documents and information, and their expectations about how they should 
be able to access them. In recognition of these changes and the need to 
make even more of NARA's vast and diverse range of permanent records 
available to people across the country, we issued a new agency 
Strategic Plan in March 2014, with an even greater emphasis on 
digitization. As a result of the rapid developments, changes in 
peoples' use and access expectations, and NARA's increased emphasis on 
digitization, we need to revise the 2008 digitization strategy. The 
proposed revisions signal key shifts in approach to digitization at
