About TRAIL Series Processing Inventories

Series listed are linked to spreadsheets which are the TRAIL series processing inventories.

These inventories, which may be downloaded, list individual report titles that have been processed by TRAIL for digitization and provide a link to the digital copy as it becomes available. 

If you know of a report that is missing or would like to supply a needed report, please contact the Coordinator of the Collections Working Group

Note: A digitized report may not be viewable for many reasons due to the original item format, the time it takes to process/ship/digitize, and to copyright issues that preclude public access of the image.
