Descriptions of the holdings of the Jimmy Carter Library in Atlanta, GA are now available to the public on the Internet. The holdings include the White House materials of President and Mrs. Carter and their staffs. The more than 37,000 descriptions represent 52 collections totaling about 7 million pages of publicly-available textual material.

Archivist of the United States John Carlin said, "The 37,000 descriptions documenting the Carter Administration that are now available to Internet users exemplify NARA's commitment to access. Scholars, researchers, and the general public interested in the history and significance of the Carter Presidency will find this to be an invaluable resource."

The Carter material can be accessed on the World Wide Web through the NARA "NAIL."
