Last time I visited USAHEC was 3 years ago and they were still eager to have visitors at all. There was just another researcher in the reading room. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, it's really the research place I like best.

They did have a limit on oral history. Some regulations had come up saying that any "oral history" was to be doubled checked by historians before public release. I asked for files used in Hogan's green book (A Command post at war, published in 2000) but it would have taken a couple of weeks until historians could clear the file. I was back in Europe before this could be done.

This regulation was specific to USAHEC. The morning after, I was at NARA and easily got all interviews made by Pogue for his own green book...

Lesson learned: whenever you access a file, make a copy immediately. You may not be able to get in again next time.

It makes TNA and BAMA look like the most user-friendly archives on the planet, which is saying something. :thumbsup:
I find both pretty user-friendly. BAMA is really easy to navigate. TNA descriptions are extremely detailed at times (down to each single document in a folder), which is just great.

No, Mori, same problem/situation here in Austria.
Guess it´s one of those cases where the USA let you see content only when they can spy on your pc at the same moment.
Nah, the average American institutional website managers aren't that clever. :lol: :lol: :lol:
