JUNEAU- The Alaska State Archives has completed its two-year project of sorting through and preserving documents related to the Exxon Valdez oil spill.


The project began in October 2011 and, according to a release, involved appraising and organizing 3,500 boxes of court records. Three staff members organized and catalogued more than 900 boxes for permanent preservation in the State Archives and uploaded a catalog record to an online bibliographic database.


About 2,700 boxes in Juneau were deemed to have no permanent value. Since an aspect of the litigation is still ongoing, the state will wait to dispose of nonpermanent files.
