Secrecy

The National Archives in the States has admitted to removing items from their shelves and secretly reclassifying them. While I blogged on this before, the shocking part of this is to me that they would agree to secretly remove items that has formerly been available to researches. In a profession that is supposed to uphold access to information it seems counter-intuitive. The memorandum was obtain through a Freedom of Information request and has since been posted on their website. At least they are admitting to their acts now.
