Index cards of the Indian and Inuit Affairs program relating to the red and black file series and some successor file systems. There are useful agency, reserve and subject breakdowns with emphasis on land matters. Also included are the master negative microjackets of the index cards. This material is transferred to P.A.C. under the terms of microfilm submission M-19-80 approved 30 June 1980. This is the first instalment and further transfers will follow. This instalment of microjackets will not require updating. The cards will be retained in storage for approximately 5 years to ensure that there is a backup in case of faulty microjackets. The master negative microjackets will be retained on permanent retention by P.A.C. in safe storage. A working copy of the microjackets will be produced for P.A.C. use. If the microjackets prove to be satisfactory the index cards will be recommended for destruction at the end of the 5 year period.
The microfiche copies have been brought to permanent as RG10 volumes 10884-10887 and are described in MIKAN 157528 and by finding aid 10-96.
