When originally processed and described, the material in this series was stored based on their media type without maintaining the original location. Much of this material was then processed and described in isolation from the rest of the records. In 2017 material was intellectually repatriated to RG-11 to re-establish the hierarchical relationship of the records. This series was created to describe the material that could not be repatriated.
