As part of its Electronic Access Project, the National Archives and
Records Administration (NARA) is constructing a nationwide, integrated
online information delivery system. The project, a priority under the
agency's Stategic Plan, will eventually result in a virtual card catalog of
all NARA holdings nationwide, including those in the Presidential libraries
and regional archives.  In addition, copies of some of NARA's most
popular and significant manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings,
maps, drawings and other documents will be digitized and available for
researchers to view online through the catalog.
To complete the final functional requirements for the catalog, NARA is
undertaking an evaluation of its prototype, the NARA Archival Information
Locator (NAIL).  Everyone is invited to use NAIL and to comment on its
ease of use, functionality, and terminology.
NAIL can be accessed on the World Wide Web at  Comments can be sent through the

Comments should be received by January 31, 1998.
Thank you.
