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.

Address: http://www.nara.gov/nara/nail.html

**** GOVERNMENT INFORMATION LOCATOR SERVICE (GILS)
DATABASE****
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.

Address: http://www.nara.gov/gils/gils.html or
Z39.50:gils@wais.nara.gov

**** NARA HOMEPAGE ****
The existing gopher-based homepage has been replaced with a new
front end that utilizes World Wide Web technology.

Address: http://www.nara.gov/

Comments, suggestions, and criticisms are encouraged and needed.
Thank you.
