Special Note:  Washington D.C....As part of ongoing budget adjustments, Archivist of the United States David S. Ferrriero announced the permanent closure of three National Archives facilities.

The National Archives' facility in Anchorage, Alaska, will close permanently in 2014. The employees who work there will be offered positions at other National Archives facilities, with the National Archives paying relocation expenses.  The less than 12,000  cubic feet of archival records in Alaska will be moved to the National Archives at Seattle, WA, where the National Archives will digitize these records so that they remain available to Alaskans through the internet. In addition we will  move approximately 7,500 cubic feet of records center holdings to Seattle, WA.
