NARA Establishes Digital Archives for Obama Records

The National Archives and Records Administration announced that it will focus on preserving and providing access to Barack Obama’s Presidential records through digital archives while retaining the original records in NARA facilities. With the Obama Foundation committed to funding digitization of all unclassified records, this system will allow researchers around the world to study presidential materials and will make the Obama Presidential Center, scheduled to open in Chicago in the next five years, the first completely digital presidential library.
