While we were at the FGS Conference this past week, we were informed about the proposal to reduce the number of hours in which the research rooms at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration are open. Dick Eastman currently has a petition on his Web site that individuals can sign to keep the archives open on evenings and Saturdays. Please sign the petition if you are concerned about this issue. Currently, there are 8134 signatures. All of the petitions must be signed by September 8, 2006. Click here if you would like to hear Dick Eastman talk about this petition. Dick has encouraged individuals to post this information on Web sites, newsletters, and mailing lists to help get the word out. Thanks!
Please Sign the Petition to Keep the Archives Open Longer Hours
