Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).
NARA Facility Locations and Hours
NARA is adding to its regulations the location of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and revising the location and hours for the regional archives in NARA's Southeast Region (Atlanta) in Morrow, Georgia. This final rule will affect the public.
Office of Presidential Libraries; Proposed Disposal of Clinton Administration Electronic Backup Tapes
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has identified Clinton backup tapes, housed at the National Archives at College Park, Maryland, as appropriate for disposal under the provisions of 44 U.S.C. 2203(f)(3). This notice describes the Presidential record information on these backup tapes and our reasons for determining that these backup tapes have insufficient administrative, historical, informational, or evidentiary value to warrant their continued preservation. NARA is maintaining the Presidential record information on these backup tapes on a different set of electronic media. NARA will review timely public comments received on this notice before making a final determination on the disposal of the records.
