The papers of Supreme Court justices, as is the case for all federal judges, are not subject to regulation. The speakers present background information on justice papers, illustrate their value for historians and the public, and discuss challenges that arise for repositories in processing and managing them. They also discuss how regulation would help increase the amount of information preserved, make archivists' access decisions easier and more consistent, and manage researchers' expectations.
