Two new videos from CNI’s December membership meeting are now online:

Yours, Mine, or Ours? The Freedom of Information Act Archive: Making the Transition from Faculty Project to Community Resource provides a project update of the world’s largest aggregation of declassified U.S. government documents, and discusses the crossroads the project now faces in order to be of value to a large community.

In 2014 the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) began the process of refactoring its Electronic Records Archives (ERA) system. Development of the system ended in 2010, and it was time to review the processing and preservation needs of an increasingly diverse collection of archival holdings that exceeded 500 TB in size. Preserving Federal Electronic Records: Implementing a New Electronic Records Archive at the National Archives and Records Administration describes ERA 2.0, which will upgrade digital preservation functionality extant in the current production system, and enable additional efficiency and automation in the processing of electronic records at scale.
