Partly for security reasons and partly to separate physical from
intellectual control, our finding aids contain no location information.
A patron reading our finding aids would glean no knowledge about where a
collection is stored.

Subject: separate finding aids for single collection

Hi all. I've been asked to make two (or more) separate finding aids for
a single collection which is split into two (or more) locations (and by
location, I mean different floors in the same building.)

In other word, Stanton family papers might have two finding aids. One
for the first half which is on level A, and one for the second half
which is on level B... and so forth.

1) Is this common? 
2) What would be the pros and cons of doing this?
3) Any additional thoughts?

Let me know if I'm not being clear. :)
