DALLAS -- The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is set to begin accepting Freedom of Information Act requests for records from Bush's presidency. 

 

The library will start taking requests today, which marks five years from the end of Bush's presidency. Access to the records is governed by the Presidential Records Act, which says the records may be requested by the public five years after the presidential administration ends. 

 

The library says all requests must be in a written format -- email, mail or fax -- and must state that the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act. 

 

The library, which opened last year on the Southern Methodist University campus, notes the process will take time and cited factors including the volume and complexity of presidential records.
