Document Number: 2014-24595
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-16
Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
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.

Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments
Document Number: 2014-24029
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-08
Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
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).
