White House visitor records online

As part of President Obama's commitment to transparency, the White House has begun providing records of visitors to the White House online.

In a statement announcing the policy on 4 September 09, the President said:
For the first time in history, records of White House visitors will be made available to the public on an ongoing basis. We will achieve our goal of making this administration the most open and transparent administration in history not only by opening the doors of the White House to more Americans, but by shining a light on the business conducted inside it. Americans have a right to know whose voices are being heard in the policymaking process.
