The National Coalition for History has a report on the meeting of the Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB) in November where there were discussions of the declassification, archival processing, and release of the 9/11 Commission records and the National Archives and Records Administration’s Electronic Records Archives (ERA):
- Electronic Records Archives & 9/11 Commission Records Update, National Coalition for History, November 26th, 2008.
Two interesting tidbits:
Ken Thibodeau, Director of NARA’s Electronic Records Archive (ERA), reported that four federal agencies are currently using ERA system and that all federal agencies should be using the ERA by January 2011.
Thibodeau also reported on the upcoming transfer of the electronic records from the Bush administration to the National Archives. NARA is developing a separate system, known as the Executive Office of the President (EOP) ERA, to ingest an estimated 100 terabytes of electronic records from the Bush administration.
