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

NARA Audiovisual Information Locator (NAIL) Database

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
    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

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.
