If anyone has any information on the following, I would be very grateful.
* archiving policies (if any), of studios or major production companies on
marked up scripts
*  any theses, papers  or articles (published or unpublished) on marked up
* any public or private libraries (institutes etc.) which might have a
collections  of  marked up scripts
By "marked up  scripts", I am referring to the copy of the script which is
marked up (slate, number of takes and shot type) by the continuity person
on set  at the time of filming, and is later  used by the editor in the
cutting room. At the end of production, it is normal practice to  file away
the marked up script with the editor's materials - trims etc.  This is my
understanding at least. Nevertheless, I'd be very interested to hear from
any professional editors (especially those who have worked on productions -
in *any* country), as to their own understanding of what happens (or has
happened) to the marked up script once they have finished with it.
