Akselrod (Axelrod) (Part 8), and M. I. Kalinin (Part 9). Parts 1-2 and 6-8 are on microfiche only, Part 5 is on both microfiche and microfilm, and Part 9 is on microfilm only. The microfilm call number is Film A 1009; the microfiche call number is Microfiche W 4543. Both microfilm and microfiche are stored in the basement of Lamont library.
Finding Aids -- The Hollis catalogue claims that there is a hard copy (book) catalogue for this archive, but I could not locate it. The microfilm/microfiche contains copies of the opisi (finding aids) from RGASPI for each Part. These appear at the beginning of the Part, before the documents themselves.
