In the News

"Is Hillary Rodham Clinton sitting on documents from her days as First Lady? That’s the insinuation Republican officials are making on the eve of the latest Democratic presidential debate. . . But Richard J. Cox, a professor of library and information science at the University of Pittsburgh, says that delays in releasing White House records is an issue that goes beyond the current crop of presidential contenders. Mr. Cox, who writes about archival matters on his blog, Reading Archives, is no fan of the current system, which keeps all records from the public for five years after the president leaves office."[1]
