Clinton’s administration web page [2001]

With the inauguration of George W. Bush, the White House website was completely changed and all of the Clinton administration’s web collection disappeared overnight. Fortunately, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) had begun to preserve the content of the Clinton administration’s contributions to the White House website, although some suspect that information has been lost anyway, since it has been reported that agencies in the Executive Branch were not all successful in complying with NARA preservation requests.
