NARA Seeks Feedback on Draft FY 2018-FY 2022 Strategic Plan (1 September 2017 deadline)

From our friends on the IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee ….

The (US) National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has posted its draft strategic plan and the public is invited to submit comments by September 1, 2017.  Earlier this month NARA employees were given one week to provide feedback and now the plan is being shared for public comment. For information see: 

One can access the draft plan at:

The report pdf is available at:

Note the draft plan states that public access is NARA's core mission. It lists the goals of digitization of all their records to make them available through the National Archives Catalog.

For instructions using GitHub or submit them by email to strategy@nara.gov

The intent is to deliver the final plan in February 2018.

Jan Meisels Allen
Chairperson, IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee
