SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The legislative mandate of the National Park Service Organic Act, 
found at 54 U.S.C. 100101(a), 100301 et seq. is to conserve America's 
natural wonders unimpaired for future generations, while also making 
them available for the enjoyment of the visitor. Meeting this mandate 
requires the NPS to balance conservation with use. Maintaining a good 
balance requires information and limits, as well as providing effective 
training to those responsible for upholding this mandate. The NPS 
Common Learning Portal (CLP) is focused on increasing the visibility of 
training available to NPS employees and makes the site available to the 
public to allow NPS partners, retired NPS employees, and other 
interested persons not directly affiliated with the NPS access. The 
information we collect as part of the registration process for the CLP 
enables non-NPS persons to register and participate with others within 
the site. The creation of a personal profile provides those using the 
CLP with basic information that can be used to find others with similar 
jobs, learning interests or to solve learning problems. All personal 
information, with the exception of the person's name and email address 
are optional when creating the profile, and profile information may be 
edited or deleted at
