The National Archives and Records Administration has released two
new public access services and a new agency homepage that allow, for
the first time, the public to search NARA databases over the
Internet.

NARA Audiovisual Information Locator (NAIL) Database

    http://www.nara.gov/nara/nail.html

The NAIL database contains 81,000 series and item-level descriptions
of material held by the Still Picture Branch and the Motion Picture,
Sound, and Video Branch , as well as information about ordering
copies.   Data come from existing databases and from card catalog
scanning projects, and will continue to grow.

Government Information Locator Service (GILS) Database

    http://www.nara.gov/gils/gils.html
    or  Z39.50: gils [at] wais__nara__gov

The GILS database is NARA's response to OMB Circular 96-01 that
mandates that all Federal Agencies make available online information
about automated information systems and a catalog of information
products by January 1, 1996.

NARA Homepage

    http://www.nara.gov/

The existing gopher-based homepage has been replaced with a new
front end that utilizes World Wide Web technology. Comments,
suggestions, and criticisms are encouraged and needed.
