Scope and content
The SGLO series is divided into three categories.

The SGLO-MISC documents deal with administrative issues (the annual report of the Liaison Office among others)
Appraisal, destruction and scheduling
System of arrangement
SGLO documents are arranged in chronological order.
Originally, they did not have a reference number. Their form and content are similar to those of the SGLPs (another series of memoranda produced by the Liaison Office). Their handwritten reference, which was added subsequently, contains the acronym, followed by the date of the meeting (e.g. SGLO-130952).
