Attention Researchers! New Locked Bags Policy in DC-Area Research Rooms
Conducting research in Washington, DC or College Park, MD Research Rooms in 2011? Please take note of the new policy on the use of locking bags for removing reproductions, personal notes, and other papers from the Research Center. When researchers exit the research room, they will have personal property inspected by National Archives research room staff. Copies of records, notes, personal books, papers and media will be placed in a locking document security bag, eliminating the need for a second security check of papers on your way out of the building. We appreciate your cooperation as we implement this new policy; with your help we can keep the records secure for all researchers.
