Chapter Six. Archiving Your Assets > Archiving Processes

This program is designed “to extend its mission to include the electronic records of the U.S. Government; that is, to preserve and provide long-term access to uniquely valuable electronic Federal, Presidential, and Congressional records.” As you might imagine, this is one dandy of a task and NARA had to develop a process to achieve it.
