New From Archivist of the United States: NARA Celebrates the U.S. Entry into Open Government Partnership

David Ferriero writes:

Yesterday, President Barack Obama unveiled the U.S. National Action Plan during a meeting in New York of the member nations of the Open Government Partnership.  Last Week, the White House also issued a Status Report on the Administration’s Commitment to Open Government.

Over the past year and a half, I’ve written a lot about how the work of the National Archives is based on the belief that citizens have the right to see, examine, and learn from the records that document the actions of their government.  The following are only a few of the areas where the National Archives is making significant contributions to strengthen open government and our democracy.

Mr. Ferriero discusses the following areas:

  • Records Management
  • National Declassification Center
  • Online Access to Government Records
  • Federal Register
  • Office of Government Information Services
  • International Meeting of Archivists
