NARA is giving public notice that the agency proposes to request extension of two currently approved information collections. The first is used by researchers who wish to do biomedical statistical research in archival records containing highly personal information. The second is used by customers/researchers for ordering reproductions of NARA's motion picture, audio, and video holdings that are housed in the Washington, DC, area of the National Archives and Records Administration. The second is prepared by organizations that want to make paper-to-paper copies of archival holdings with their personal copiers. The public is invited to comment on the proposed information collection pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments
Document Number: 2013-29424
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-10
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).
