By February 6, the digitized materials will also be available at no charge in National Archives research rooms in Washington D.C. and regional facilities across the country.

After an interval of five years, all images digitized through this agreement will be available at no charge through the National Archives web site.

'This is an exciting step forward for the National Archives,' said Professor Weinstein.
