As of November 1996, the E-FOIA (Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments) has required that we provide information to the public making it readily accessible via electronic format. This page will represent our effort to comply with the requirements of this amendment. It is an on-going effort.
We are providing both "quick links" to information provided via our homepage menu, as well as information unique to the Reading Room environment.
