The Alaska State Archives made significant advances in the first six months. The Project Team consisting of Sara Bornstein and Larry Hibpshman appraised all 3,528 boxes of Department of Law spill litigation files in State Archives custody. They reviewed and determined which records have permanent historical value and which documents do not possess long-term value and should be disposed.
In March Sara presented a brief update to the Alaska Historical Commission. The Citizen Advisory Task Force held its second teleconference April 4. In April project staff began arranging and describing permanent files. Descriptions will eventually be placed in an online bibliographic network for worldwide access. The State Archives continues its public outreach emphasis.
