Finding Aids

To create a pull request, you need look up the location of the box containing the Engineering Field Notes of interest. You can use the Engineering Field Notes Folder/Volume Lists onsite or as a PDF(2.5MB). I converted the list into a searchable spreadsheet version: xlsx (Excel 4.MB) or csv (text 850K). It can be used to quickly find field notes of interest and the location information needed to create pull requests.
