Custodial History

This microfilm was produced by a grant awarded and administered by SARA's Local Government Records Services for the 1994 grant cycle. Grantees submitted two copies of each roll of project film: a silver copy for secure storage at the State Records Center; and a duplicate copy, containing only non-restricted records, for public use at the State Archives research room.

Use copies of rolls containing restricted records are not maintained by the Archives, and are withdrawn from public use at time of accessioning. Security copies of such rolls are held at the State Records Center and are subject to restrictions under law.

Restricted film was marked and use copies were weeded at time of accession; 3 rolls of restricted microfilm (use copy only) were returned to the local government; 25 rolls of master negatives (security copy) were sent to the State Records Center (TL 95-96).
