Format of Entries
Guide entries are arranged by general type of record -- general administrative records, inmate case files, and institutional records -- and then by the facility or office that produced the records. Preceding each section of institutional records is a brief description of the development of the facility. Each entry contains the series number and title, inclusive dates of the records, quantity of the records (including microfilm reels if available), brief description of the content of the records, and the series number. Entries for series with restricted access contain an "R" to indicate that there are restrictions. Special written permission from the Archives is needed before these records can be used.
