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.
