Finding aids will be created for all processed collections and will make clear the collection’s place in the story of
Pan Am Flight 103. This will include the role of the individual who created or donated the materials and their
relationship to the bombing.
There is no required cash gift associated with the donation of materials, but conserving and indexing collections,
rehousing them in acid-free folders and boxes, storing them in an environmentally controlled facility, and providing
worldwide access via the web are costly tasks. Support from individuals and organizations who donate records is
always appreciated.
