AND USE RESTRICTIONS:
assistance provided by the NARA is designed to assist the public
in obtaining access to information contained in records which are
in the custody of the National Archives. Restrictions on the use
of accessioned records in the National Archives of the United States
are divided into two categories: general restrictions and specific
restrictions. General restrictions apply to all records regardless
of origin and apply to types of information or classes of records
exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, for
example, national security information. Specific restrictions are
specified by the transferring agency or donor and apply only to
records in a particular record group or a portion of that record
group. All statements of general and specific restrictions are included
in the "Guide to the National Archives of the United States" as
supplemented by 36 CFR 1256 Subparts A and B. Access to records
in the records center operations within NARA's regional records
services facilities; in the National Personnel Records Center; and
in the Washington National Records Center is controlled by the agency
which created the records.
Coordination: None. This program is excluded
from coverage under E.O. 12372.

of a Researcher Application. Microfilm publications are available
