Missing or misplaced documents currently represent less than 0.01% of our total collection. 130 out of the 402 documents that were listed as missing have since been located. Please see the attached spreadsheet for a list of those documents from the original spreadsheet that have since been found. This information can be found in a new column (column J – ‘date found’) on an updated version of the original spreadsheet. Blank entries in this column indicate that the relevant documents are still missing.
