The US Archivist is charged with managing the National Archives and Records Administration, which holds some 10 billion items. Ferriero was appointed as a successor to Allen Weinstein, who resigned in December on health grounds. At the New York library, he helped integrate the four research libraries and 87 branch libraries into one huge organization. Among his roles was to develop the library’s strategy for storing digital documents and images.
