As researchers request materials, a review of the documents will take place. Staff will remove any documents with social security numbers, employee numbers or other sensitive identifying information. Any document found including this information is closed for 90 years from date of creation, or until verifiable proof of a person’s death is given.

The redacted copy will then be placed in the publicly available folder.

After folders have been reviewed using these procedures and the confidential materials have been removed, the restriction shall be lifted..
