The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is seeking public comment on its draft Plan for Digitizing Archival Materials for Public Access, 2007-2016. This draft plan outlines the planned strategies to digitize and make more accessible the historic holdings from the National Archives of the United States.
A public meeting will be held in Washington, D.C. on October 4 at 10:30 to discuss the National Archives digitization plan. The link below will lead you to the plan. For those of you not in the Washington area, the link provides instructions on how to register your comments on the plan.
Public input on this plan is important. Genealogists should read this plan carefully and ofer comments.
The NARA Digitizing Plan draft is available at: http://www.archives.gov/comment/digitizing-plan.html.
UPDATE: The room for the meeting on the digitization plan is only listed on the NARA home page (www.archive.gov) and not on the page that the link takes you to. The meeting is in the Jefferson Room at the National Archives. If you enter on the Constitution Avenue side, the room is one flight up.
