(CNN) -- The Richard Nixon Presidential Library will open a trove of records at the facility and online Thursday, including 265 hours of White House tapes, officials said.
The library, in Yorba Linda, California, will also open more than 140,000 pages of presidential records and 75 hours of video oral histories, officials said. The library is part of the National Archives.
The White House tapes span February 1973 to March 1973 and include a few from early April 1973. There are no transcripts for these tapes, but the library has produced a detailed subject log for each conversation, National Archives officials said in a statement.

Must be a fascinating job, any other Presidential libraries still releasing new stuff?
What about the “gap” in the Watergate conversation?
Wikileaks had a preview:
Haldeman: “Boss, we have been keeping close tabs on this Kenyan kid who wants your job...”
Erlichman: “...yeah, before he died, Hoover had at least 30 agents dress as women to follow him around without being noticed, and we even found the real birth certificate that shows he was born overseas.”
Liddy: “Stop all of this jaw-jacking and cut to the chase - Boss, you want me to take care of him, I can do it. They have sharp pencils in Hawaii, you know, and I can be on the first plane out in the morning.”
Nixon: What the [expletive deleted] are you [expletive deleted] stupid [expletive deleted] talking about? How [expletive deleted] paranoid are you? He’s 11. He still [expletive deleted] his pants and hasn’t even begun to think about women, and you think that this [expletive deleted] is a threat to my job? [Expletive deleted], I’ll be dead by then, who gives a flying [expletive deleted]? Besides, the little [expletive deleted] is a [expletive deleted] [expletive deleted] Commie and, in case you didn’t notice, he’s half Negro. You [expletive deleted], you have to waste my time on this [expletive deleted]! You’re all [expletive deleted] FIRED!
Nixon (quitely, to self): Yeah, right, like the American people are going to be so [expletive deleted] stupid that they’ll elect a [expletive deleted] black Communist to be President. [Expletive deleted], next thing you know some [expletive deleted] will claim that the [expletive deleted] Russkies won’t be Commies any more and that we’ll owe tons of money to those [expletive deleted] [expletive deleted] Red Chinese. [Expletive deleted] idiots, you just can’t get good help these days.
