GPO Suspends Public Access to Some NASA Records

The Government Printing Office is blocking public access to some previously released records of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, while the records are reviewed to see if they contain export-controlled information.  The move follows the controversial disabling and partial restoration of the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) (NASA Technical Report Database Partly Back Online, Secrecy News, May 9.)

“GPO has been asked to suspend any activity related to making these documents available if they have not been reviewed,” GPO said in a notice today.

“During this time, PURLs that GPO has created for the electronic versions of NASA Technical Reports found in cataloging records accessed through the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP) may not link to the documents that the catalog record describes.” (h/t Full Text Reports, infoDOCKET)
