Fifty years ago the National Archives created its Data Archives Staff; in 2017 we set a goal of only accepting transfers of electronic records after 2022. With additional goals of advancing electronic recordkeeping and digitizing 500 million pages of our collection, this strategic plan is a milestone. NARA leaders promote transparency by sharing how this plan grew out of longstanding work in electronic records and records management and discussing archives' digital future with attendees.
