NARA LAUNCHES NEW ONLINE RESOURCES
The National Archives and Records Administration has released two
new public access services and a new agency homepage that allow,
for the first time, the public to search NARA databases over the Internet.
*** NARA AUDIOVISUAL INFORMATION LOCATOR (NAIL) DATABASE****
The NAIL database contains 81,000 series and item-level descriptions of
material held by the Still Picture Branch and the Motion Picture, Sound,
and Video Branch , as well as information about ordering copies. Data
come from existing databases and from card catalog scanning projects,
and will continue to grow.
**** GOVERNMENT INFORMATION LOCATOR SERVICE (GILS)
The GILS database is NARA's response to OMB Circular 96-01 that
mandates that all Federal Agencies make available online information
about automated information systems and a catalog of information
products by January 1, 1996.

**** NARA HOMEPAGE ****
The existing gopher-based homepage has been replaced with a new
front end that utilizes World Wide Web technology.
Comments, suggestions, and criticisms are encouraged and needed.
