The original series (S-0601) contain paper records and microfilm originals. As of July 2005 boxes 12, 27, 28, 29 and 30 are not on the shelves, i.e., they have probably been moved, or are missing. Microfilm originals are in boxes 10 and 11 (and according to Karyono Sugiarto, box 12 also contained original microfilm reels). No further description is available for the records in these boxes.

The contents of the microfilm (which correspond to originals held in secure off-site storage) are described in a published inventory and a later more complete inventory (which includes corresponding microfilm numbers). The microfilms are in boxes S-1848-0053 and S-1848-0054. Microfilms UNWCC/NDX/4, UNWCC/NDX/5, UNWCC/32 are missing from this set of microfilms.
Both FF and LIC Reading Rooms have 2 copies of the detailed finding aid.
