I requested some volumes via a Finding Aid (FA) and got a prompt response back that I needed a file number for one of the requests. I noted that all there was in the FA was the volume number and a title, so I supplied it. I was then told that the file would take the usual 6-8 weeks, but that the other two volumes requested were on microfilm and available on the 2nd floor.
Then it seems to have occurred to someone that I was asking for material that seemed to be cleared for access but that hadn’t actually been cleared. So now I’m in limbo again. Are they really going to remove material that has been available for public access and give it the old “6-8 weeks” review?
Looks like it!
