An item-level inventory of the miscellaneous collection of copies of 3,615 declassified documents that were released to the Constitutional Court from files of the Presidential Archive (AP RF), the KGB, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and other repositories, including RGANI (TsKhSD) itself, which now are deposited in fond 89. The Hoover Institution English-language present catalogue covers all 76 opisi in the collection. The earlier Russian-language editions cover approximately two-thirds of the documents in the collection (through opis' 52). Neither version provides archival references to the original documents, even those in TsKhSD itself. The 1995 Russian edition includes cumulative name and subject indexes from the earlier serial editions. Most of the documents themselves and the typescript opisi (perechni) are now available in a microfilm edition from ProQuest Information and Learning Company, the successor company to Chadwyck-Healey (see b–622); individual files and documents in some opisi were withheld from the microfilms and have still not been declassified.
