Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to inform you that the FY2016 announcement for the Publishing
Historical Records in Documentary Editions program is now available. To
view the announcement, visit: :
http://www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/editions.html.

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals
to publish documentary editions of historical records. Projects may focus
on the papers of major figures from American history or cover broad
historical movements in politics, military, business, social reform, the
arts, and other aspects of the national experience. The historical value of
the records and their expected usefulness to broad audiences must justify
the costs of the project.

The goal of this program is to provide access to, and editorial context
for, the historical documents and records that tell the American story. The
NHPRC encourages projects, whenever possible and appropriate, to provide
access to these materials in a free and open online environment, without
precluding other forms of publication.

Darrell Meadows
