The National Archives has proposed a rule to address the problem of controlled unclassified information (CUI). CUI are government records that don't meet the level of security needed for classified information, but are nonetheless restricted from general access. There are no government-wide rules to deal with how this material is handled and there are more than 100 different markings federal agencies use to categorize this information.
Minutes for the SHAFR Council Meeting held on 3 January 2015 in New York City are now available. Topics discussed included the state of SHAFR finances, the SHAFR Guide to the Literature, forthcoming personnel changes, future SHAFR institutes and conferences, development initiatives, and more.
Members of SHAFR:
Peter Hahn has accepted the position of Dean of Arts and Humanities at his home institution, Ohio State University, and therefore has given notice that he must soon resign from his position as SHAFR's long-time Executive Director. Peter has served brilliantly in this post for thirteen years, guiding the organization through a period of considerable growth and success. We shall miss him very much, and we wish him every success in his new position.
