    COLLECTION STORED OFF-SITE AT SRLF: Open for research. Advance notice required for access. Contact the UCLA Library Special Collections Reference Desk for paging information.
    Portions of Record Series 722 are restricted. Boxes 47-50 are protected from public disclosure under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 as amended, as codified in Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 2.790(d). This material is clearly identified in this finding aid. Because of the nature of the reactor's security plan, these boxes are embargoed from public disclosure until December 31, 2050. Exceptions may be granted to those individuals possessing a demonstratable need to know. Application should be made to the Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, Campus Counsel, or the Campus Radiation Safety Officer in the Office of Environmental Health and Safety, who will coordinate a determination as to the need to know in consultation with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
