Collect.

Okay here is a Custom Source Type for you. Call it say "Manuscript
Collection" (unless you have some kind of original name that you prefer
<g>):
Full Footnote:
"[TITLE]," [MEMO1] ([MEMO2] [RECORD GROUP], [REPOSITORY],
[REPOSITORY ADDRESS])<. [MEMO3]<, [CD]>.
Short Footnote:
[SHORT TITLE]<, [CD]>.
Bobliography:
[REPOSITORY ADDRESS]. [REPOSITORY]. "[TITLE]," [MEMO2]
([MEMO2] [RECORD GROUP].

Entry would be like:
TITLE -- Tyler History
MEMO - as referenced by Oletta Marie Tyler||see her
papers in the||A copy of the "Tyler History" has not been
seen by this researcher; author and publication information
are unknown. If you have a copy in your possession, please
call BR-549. Collect. Ask for "Junior"
RECORD GROUP -- Tyler Surname Folio, Genealogy Section
Repository -- New Albany Public Library
Repo Address -- New Albany, Indiana

Obviously, some other design would probably be as good.

Hope this helps -
