Location of NARA Facilities and Hours of Use: Barack Obama Library
NARA is amending our Location of NARA Facilities and Hours of Use regulation to add the address and contact information for the Barack Obama Presidential Library. These changes will affect all people who wish to access records from the Barack Obama Presidential administration.
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 agencies no longer need them for current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register 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.

NARA Records Subject to FOIA
We are amending our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulations on access to NARA's archival holdings and our operational records to make them consistent with the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, and a few small administrative changes to remain current. The rule affects individuals and organizations that file FOIA requests for access to NARA operational records and archival holdings.
