On Monday, ALA submitted comments to the National Archives and Records Administration’s Administrative Committee of the Federal Register regarding the proposed changes to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

As Archives.gov states, “The Federal Register is an official daily legal publication that informs citizens of: rights and obligations, opportunities for funding and Federal benefits, and actions of Federal agencies for accountability to the public” and the CFR contains “Federal rules that have: general applicability to the public, current and future effect as of the date specified”.

Both documents are important in aiding researchers and promoting a more transparent government. Given a library’s role of providing public access to government information of all types, ALA was pleased at the opportunity to submit comments.
