"Sunshine Week," a national effort by media, schools, civic groups, libraries and others to draw attention to public records issues, begins Sunday.

Visit the York Daily Record/Sunday News' open records page, Full Disclosure, for columns on national open records issues, as well as the newspaper's ongoing coverage of right-to-know stories, original documents, "Record Tracker" blog, and links to other sites about open records.

Some of what you'll find:

--Investigative reporting from the Daily Record/Sunday News on topics such as soldier deaths, nonprofits and the city school district's alternative education program;

--Original documents, such as FBI files on the York riots, decisions on appeals under the state's new right-to-know law, and tax documents for Angel Food Ministries, a national food nonprofit under investigation by federal and state authorities;

--Links to Web sites you can use in your own public records research on topics ranging from nursing homes to restaurant inspections to disiplinary actions taken against licensed professionals.

--A Q&A on the state's new open records law from the executive director of the Pennsylvania Freedom of Information Coalition.
