In the Stacks: The National Archives
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the repository for the documents and materials of the federal government. They only retain about 1-3% of all the material produced by the government but as you can imagine there is some amazing stuff within those walls and, as is the case with all past libraries / collections / archives featured on In The Stacks, one visit is never enough.
Last week the National Archives announced that they have teamed with five other national archives and five national and international research organizations to launch a new international online research portal for records related to Nazi-era cultural property.
Here are a couple of related images, just in time for tomorrow’s 78th anniversary of the infamous Nazi book burnings.
and on a lighter note:
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Just Read!
