Reagan Presidential Library

I read a shocking article today - the Reagan Presidential Library was unable to properly account for 80,000 of their 100,000 items! The article outlines some major issues at the library and definitely something we need to watch, not just at this library, but at all our presidential libraries.

It aggravates me that whenever something similiar happens, it's always because of inadequate funding or staffing issues.

80,000 artifacts didn't get stolen or misplaces overnight. This looks to be like something that has been going on for awhile now.

Thank you for bringing that to our attention.
