From: "Lori Callaway" <callaway525 -at- msn.com> Subject: NARA schedule changes Date: Fri, 04 Aug 2006 11:05:14 -0700 Ken.....how will this affect you ? I hope not at all ! I copy & pasted this from my Ancestry.com newsletter. Lori Callaway ************************************************ The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA; <a href="http://archives.gov">http://archives.gov</a>) is considering reducing research room hours at locations around the country. The Washington, DC, headquarters and the College Park, Md., facility would end evening and Saturday hours, staying open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Regional archives would continue to operate during core hours but modify their extended hourssee proposed changes at <a href="http://archives.gov/locations/proposed-hours.html">http://archives.gov/locations/proposed-hours.html</a>. The shortened hours are a cost-cutting measure that NARA officials hope will affect the smallest possible number of visitors. Research room usage last year showed an average of only 16 percent of researchers at the two Washington, DC, area facilities used the reading rooms in the evening. Only 7 percent of the researchers used the facilities on Saturdays. This change will be open for public comment until Sept. 8 and, if adopted, become effective Oct. 2.
