Just what *IS* an "Essential publication"?

7 December 2004: NASA Internal Memo: Immediate Freeze on All Nonessential Publications and Materials, NASA HQ

"We have taken a macro look at many of our most frequently distributed communications material. As a result of this effort, we have identified areas of significant duplication, redundancy, and waste among many of these materials that must also be reviewed from both a consistency in messaging and cost-perspective basis. Therefore, effective this date, I am ordering an immediate Agencywide freeze on the design and production of all nonessential publications and communications material produced anywhere in the Agency.This freeze is applicable to all offices at Headquarters, NASA Centers, including JPL, and component facilities."
