Planning for a digital release of the Pentagon Papers

As noted here earlier “NARA is planning a digital/textual release of the Pentagon Papers for the week of June 13, 2011. This simultaneous release will be conducted by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library, the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library, and the National Declassification Center at College Park.”

We’re waiting for details, but NARA says that they “are looking to host a digital version on the website, and the three Presidential libraries (Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon) are planning their own access to the same digital version.”

NARA will maintain its own preservation copies of digital records but will not be sending copies to GPO.
