Letter to NARA re: NARA Agreement with iArchives (Sept. 10, 2007)

This letter provides comments by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) on the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) agreement with iArchives. Under terms of the agreement, iArchives will digitize selected NARA records. While ARL appreciates that the agreement will result in more public domain federal resources becoming accessible, the manner in which NARA entered into the agreement and some provisions in the agreement raise a number of concerns.
