      Restrictions on access

      Most files and items in this series are open with no restrictions. However, some may contain personal or confidential information. Files or items marked "pending review" must be reviewed by an archivist prior to release. As a result of the review, access restrictions may apply.

      Access to all analog sound recordings and moving images is restricted for preservation reasons due to the fragility of the storage medium (film reel, videocassette, audio cassette). The Archives will provide access only through digitization of the originals. As of October 2012, only one of the moving image documents (item F-174-4-6-0-0-14) exists in digital form. Please consult the reference archivist for more information about accessing these records.
