The National Archives Trust Fund is replacing current copiers and the copy card system in the research rooms of College Park, MD (Archives II) and Washington, DC (Archives I) in early 2012. The new copiers/scanners will have more features than the current copiers. The new machines produce paper copies and digitized scans that can download to thumb drives. Researchers can purchase thumb drives from the National Archives Trust Fund. The Trust Fund sells 1 GB thumb drives and will soon add 4 GB drives to their inventory.
The new copy card system will be installed concurrently with the copiers/scanners. Researchers with existing balances can expect any remaining balances on current copy cards to transfer to the new system.
The National Archives Trust Fund supports the programs of the National Archives through a variety of activities. Find information about the Trust Fund at www.archives.gov/publications/general-info-leaflets/29-trust-fund.pdf.
