Restrictions on access
There are no access restrictions with respect to privacy: the transcripts are all open. Access to the sound recordings, however, is restricted due to the fragility of the storage medium; consult the reference archivist for more information on accessing the recordings. Copyright was not formally transferred to the Archives and therefore must be managed on a case-by-case basis; consult the reference archives for more details.
Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication
Series descriptions and file lists are available. Thesis acknowledgements and abstract, and interview summaries are available in the hard copy version of the finding aid maintained in the Archives Reading Room.
All accessions have been processed as of September 2002. No further accruals are expected.
