The National Archives
recently announced a new phase in the ongoing project called the Electronic Records Archives
(ERA) whose vision
is to catalog and make available online electronic documentation produced by the Federal government (E-mails, Word Documents, etc), which otherwise could disappear entirely or at least be very difficult to locate. Funded with over 300 million and set to debut in 2007 and be complete by 2011 it is a project of unusual scope and complexities
but promises to make government more transparent to researches and the general public.
