This rule makes a technical amendment to 37 CFR 201 to remove the hours of direct public use of computers intended to access the automated equivalent of portions of the in-process files in the Records Maintenance Unit of the Copyright Office. New hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. are being implemented; but for administrative reasons, the Office decided not to include the time schedule as part of the regulation.
The reason for the change is current staff resources. A very small staff, working on a fixed schedule of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., covers this public area. Reducing the hours of public access, gives the staff needed time at the beginning and end of the day to open up and close down the area for the public. The new hours will both provide the staff with the time necessary to complete these tasks without working beyond their normal duty schedule and afford the public a sufficient amount of time to use the files.Start List of Subjects
