  • Digitization of this collection is already complete – 12/1/17
  • Folder 9 contains later typed transcripts of original manuscript letters in folders 2 & 3. Could either treat as single digital object with 2 shelf locations or as 2 digital objects. Decided to go with latter and include the following notes in the metadata: “There is a typed transcript of this letter in Folder 9 of this collection.” “This document is a transcript of a letter in Folder __ of this collection.” Will not link using mods:relatedItem. – 11/27/17 email between AP, RJ, SWM, KG
