Little Rock, Ark. (AP) Thousands of pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton's schedules as first lady are being released to the public. The move comes after months of pressure and criticism that the Clintons were delaying the disclosure.

The National Archives, which operates former president Clinton's presidential library, will release more than 11,000 pages at the Little Rock, Arkansas, facility and online.

Fellow Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama and republicans have criticized Hillary Rodham Clinton over the number of White House documents from her husband's administration that have not been made public.

The schedules are the focus of a lawsuit by Judicial Watch seeking the release of the former first lady's records, including phone logs and other files. The conservative public interest group also sued separately in federal court seeking the release of documents related to a White House task force on health care that Clinton headed as first lady.
