To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the DC Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
A list of Federal Depository Libraries that provide free access to "Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade" records, United States and International, from 1441 to 1888; and links to their catalogues and online materials.
To clarify our request:
According to its website, "the Federal Depository Library Program has collected, organized, and preserved information produced by all parts of the Federal government [since its founding in 1895], distributes this information to designated libraries across the country, and assists people in locating and using it. ... The mission of Federal depository libraries is to provide local, free access to information from the Federal government in an impartial environment. ... The depository library must then provide the public with free and uninhibited access to these selected materials. ... Federal depository collections are available for use by everyone. Documents in print and electronic formats are available on a wide range of topics relevant to the general public and to professionals, researchers, and students in a variety of fields.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business days, as the statute requires.
