Because CRI has a branch in Calgary Alberta, the shipping costs to send those to CRI were far less than shipping them to their US facility. I assume that inter-CRI practices would have them either duplicated or sent from Calgary to wherever their research and library are located - probably in the USA.
And again I assume, but do not know whether, after all the spanning years, anyone at CRI would remember receiving that material in 1996, or woult without having to go through reams of material not yet assessed, would be able to confirm where that material is in their organization - CRI is as highly computerized as most such organizations and might be able to confirm library contents at the click of a mouse.
I recommend that if it is doubted that those tapes and transcripts are as stated in the CRI research library, write or call CRI and ask the obvious question - the package bore the title "The Lynden Bible Lectures."
Besides the package sent to CRI, the tapes were all converted to mp3 audio files and the transcripts were all digitized including graphics. And these were on the VOT website from 204 (about) through 2010, then again on votisalive.com (VIA from 1010 until Via was taken offline in old age (having been hacked the day it was taken offline due to old software insecurities).
And something like 2 years prior to VIA being taken offline, preparations to do so placing all of the material on that website into as many hands as possible, everything was converted to PDF format and posted for download on the article pages themselves.
So that particular item (the Lynden Bible Lectures) still exists in the hands of many people in that form, downloaded from VIA mainly by Christian Churches, Bible Colleges, universities etc. And for varification, click the link below - someone who downloaded it here posted one of the lectures on this board some time ago.
