When President George W. Bush signed Executive Order 13233 on November 1, 2001 he reopened the issue of presidential records and papers. Bush's executive action renewed popular interest in the ownership, access, and control of presidential papers, issues that have been of great interest to librarians, archivists, and information professionals for the greater part of 30 years. This resource is the first comprehensive bibliography of works written about the records, documents, and papers of the nation's chief executive. It fills a sizable gap by listing over 1000 citations on the topic. Additionally, there are appendixes that trace Congressional attempts to control this material as well as listings of significant judicial cases that have centered on federal control of 'personal' papers of the president or other government employees.
