More about the data...
The Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (LTDL) was created in 2002 by the UCSF Library and Center for Knowledge Management. LTDL was built to house and maintain tobacco industry internal corporate documents produced during litigation between 46 U.S. States and the seven major tobacco industry organizations. These internal documents give a view into the workings of one of the largest and most influential industries in the United States.
