Input Requested: Priorities for NARA Digitization

NARA in Anchorage needs to hear from you by June 30th!

Participation and feedback is essential to the operations of the National Archives. As you may be aware, as part of ongoing budget adjustments, the National Archives at Anchorage will permanently close in the coming months, and the archival records will be moved to the National Archives at Seattle.

In order to make these records more broadly available to the public, they are planning to begin to digitize records from the Anchorage holdings. Pamela Wright, is heading up their digitization efforts. She is seeking your participation to help select the records that should be prioritized for digitization.

There are two documents to review:

After they receive your feedback, NARA will also take into consideration access and use restrictions, preservation issues, series size, and ease of digitization when determining the final prioritization. Your participation will also help NARA better understand the interests and needs of researchers and stakeholders, as well as further participation and transparency in an open government.

Please send your feedback to

Thank you for your interest and participation!
