Just because it is tangentially on topic...In the USA, other than IBM
itself one can try the Hagley Museum archives in Wilmington, Delaware.
There is an IBM document subarchive there.  In 1987 while working for IBM
as a college student intern I was dispatched once to retrieve some docs
stored there.  I dont know what the extent of the IBM component of the
archive is, or if it is Wilmington/Philadelpia/DuPont only.

Related to Hagley I recently retrieved RCA docs there.  There is also
UNIVAC stuff.
