I have a couple docs that i think would be of benefit to the archive but i can't find any tutorial on proper procedure with regard to format (i assume pdf), submission (upload to media center?) or for starters how to conduct a search to determine if the docs already exist in the archive.

...and while i'm at it, what does F.O.I.A stand for?

Good questions, sorry if I'm useless in regards to the archive stuff... BUT, I can tell you what F.O.I.A. stands for:
Freedom of Information Act.
It allows for release of certain documents held by the gov.
An example would be how authors & investigators procured documents for research and writing pertaining to the JFK assassination. (Of course, many pages had entire sections of paragraphs blacked out.)!

Thank you FRIGHTENER for taking time to reveal the acronym.

Maybe ATS needs a Freedom of Information Act of their own to include in the Policies, so that information about the Document Archive can be readily available.

I checked on a thread in the FOIA document forum (separate from the FOIA Working Forum, which is restricted for reading as well as writing) and the moderator there appears to be JacKatMtn, so you might want to u2u him to ask about the process

I know that The Vagabond and budski have the little document archivist tags in their avy.

If I run across any more I'll share.

Edit: Also Sauron

Thanks SD... NovusOrdoMundi and i were U2Uing back and forth yesterday and he offered to look into the details. He also mentioned Jack as the main contact. Based on what he was saying, when a FOIA comes along of interest to the ATS community, a copy is made available via the FOIA Working Forum where only Document Archivists can review and write up synopsis's before it's filed away in the Government Document Archive for general member access and added commentary.

I received word from JacKatMtn, this is what he had to say about the archive:

...the FOIA forum was dedicated to the Clifford Stone FOIA Document Archives, there was no member provided FOIA docs within the project, and right now the project is on a hiatus due to the focus on other projects that are in the works.
