NARA Issues Regulation on Public Use of Facilities

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) published a final rule in the Federal Register on June 30, 2008, to amend its regulations on public use of the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, and Archives II in College Park, Maryland for meetings or special events.

This proposal incorporates changes in available space as a result of the renovation of the National Archives Building by identifying the kinds of space available and procedures for requesting use. NARA also proposes to charge fees for the use of public areas in the National Archives Building in Washington and Archives II.

NARA had issued the regulation as a proposed rule on April 4, 2008, but received no public comments.
