      The National Archives are to start digitizing their collection. The
      projects objectives are to provide online access to an increased
      number of holdings and enhance preservation of records by reducing
      wear and tear on the originals. Once copied digitally, records may
      be relocated to less expensive archival storage locations. Clear
      information is supposed to be provided about how the records may be
      located and used.

      These include official military personnel files for millions of
      veterans, federal population census records from 1790 through 1930.
      Mathew Brady Civil War photographs, ship passenger arrival lists and
      naturalization documents, Freedmen's Bureau materials, case files
      documenting more than 10 million land entries and American Indian
      School records.

      The plan is on line at www.archives.gov/about/plans-reports/strategic-
      plan

      Go to www.archives.gov/comment/digitizing-plan.html to view the
      draft plan for the project.

      November 9th.
