Small typo, Michael, correcting it:  I wrote "I certainly understand why this is confusing 
outside NARA, given the agency's use of the term through January 2016 for a traditional 
private Foundation constructed facility and the often muddled reporting!"  That should be "I 
certainly understand why this is confusing outside NARA, given the agency's use of the 
term through January *2017* for a traditional private Foundation constructed facility and 
the often muddled reporting!"  The change away from that traditional model was announced 
that Spring, as noted earlier.

The Presidential Records Act (1978) requires the statutory transfer of Presidential records to 
the National Archives at the end of an administration.  There is no requirement for such 
records to be housed in a separate, physical structure constructed with private funds and 
administered as a Presidential Library. Although we worked under a separate records 
statute, which also required that the presidential portions of the records be held in 
government custody, the Nixon Presidential Materials Staff (I among them at one point) 
operated out of various Washington, DC locations.  You can see how NARA handled public 
access and information for the project in 2006 through the Wayback Machine:
