NOTE TO RESEARCHER: The Giuliani Collection represents over 40,000 index records, available on our web site, which can be searched by keyword, the office or persons who created the files (i.e., Deputy Mayor), file types (i.e., gen. corresp.), and/or year.A portion of the documents within this Collection are available in electronic form, and the remainder in their original print form only at the NYC Municipal Archives.The electronic documents have not been posted online, as some of them may present privacy issues.Check with the Archives to determine whether the documents are available in e-form, and, if so, whether they need any redaction for public viewing.Most 2001 records are not currently available, as at the time of processing of the Giuliani Papers, these files had remained with the Mayor Bloomberg Administration.
