Collection restrictions:

Collection is open for research.

Some of the pamphlets are rapidly deteriorating due to the acidic composition of their paper. To protect the most severe cases from further deterioration yet still make them available to researchers, many of them were photocopied on acid-free paper. These use copies are filed in the main collection and the originals are closed to use.
