Newsletter Gaps

For Archives Month 2008 Contest

Updated 8/11/2011

We have defined a newsletter as any publication issued serially to keep a defined group informed. This list of titles is not comprehensive. If you have a title that does not appear here please contact us. Memos and Notes, such as SPEAR Technical Memos and VM Notes, are not newsletters, but sequentially issued reports usually of a technical or how-to nature; they are beyond the scope of this contest.

The contest is over, but we are still accepting donations. The list has been updated in the wake of the contest. Strikeouts indicate that the contest or more recent donations filled these gaps. Some gaps have been partially closed, but remain because we strive to have several copies of certain issues.
