In the days prior to computers, much of the AINA collection was housed in pamphlet boxes consisting of a variety of items, such as clippings, drafts of articles, reprints, and other miscellaneous materials relating to people, places and topical subjects relating to Northern Canada, Greenland, Alaska, Scandinavia, Russia and Antarctica. We have been transferring material from the pamphlet boxes to University Archives (TFDL 520) for better accessiblity.
When asking for material from Archives the following information is needed: Accession 2011.035 (Arctic Institute of North America), the file number and the file title.
File # - 3.20
File Title – Perry River Expedition – Research Reports
Requests should be submitted to the Archives References email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As this material is held off-site, please allow for 1-2 days for the file to be sent to the Archives Reading room (TFDL 520), where you can look at the material.
To see the current file list please ask to see a copy at Gallagher Library, we can let you see a copy of the list for you to use as a reference point.
