Upheaval at the National Archives

Upheaval at the National Archives, by Barbie E. Keiser, Information Today, (March 10, 2011).

Who knew that libraries, records, and archives could be so controversial? It’s rare to find an archive as headline news, but the first quarter of 2011 has not ended and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has seen its name in lights for two seemingly independent issues: Suspended development of the Electronic Records Archive (ERA) and closure of the Archives Library and Information Center (ALIC).
