WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The National Archives on Wednesday released more than 11,000 pages of Sen. Hillary Clinton's schedule when she was first lady.

More than 11,000 pages of Sen. Hillary Clinton's schedule will be released from her time as first lady.

 Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has pushed for the documents' release, arguing that their review is necessary to make a full evaluation of Clinton's experience as first lady.

The documents cover nearly 2,900 days. An additional 27 days will be posted in the near future, the archives said.

The documents are from the files of Patti Solis Doyle, director of Clinton's scheduling as first lady, the archives said in a statement.

Doyle stepped down as Clinton's presidential campaign manager in February after a string of poor showings in primaries.

"Arranged chronologically, these records document in detail the activities of the first lady, including meetings, trips, speaking engagements and social activities for the eight years of the Clinton administration," the archives said.

The records were simultaneously released on CD-ROM at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and at the archives in Washington.

The documents are among those at the center of a legal battle between the archives and Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest group that has long urged a speedier release of files from the Clinton White House years.

In a court motion this month, the archives promised to release the schedules by the end of the month but said it will need "one to two years" to process remaining documents, including more than 20,000 pages of call logs -- an indication those documents won't be released by the November 4 presidential election.

According to the archives statement, 4,746 of the schedules have redactions, information removed before being released, that largely relate to privacy concerns and include Social Security and telephone numbers and home addresses.

The documents will be available for view on the Clinton Library's Web site. E-mail to a friend
