Moving Images
We care for approximately 800 moving image collections, which would take more than a year to watch. Of these, 300+ are described online at the collection level. To read about each collection, click on the collection name. Search by entering a word in the Search box. Browse by clicking on one of the terms above: Places, Genres, Subjects, Decades, People

Fifty new collections are being described in 2010, thanks to a generous grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources/Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Cataloging Hidden Collections and Archives program. For more information about this project please visit here.

Item Description: More than 20,000 individual items (film reels and videotapes) are described in our research database, which we are converting to share here. Please check back, or contact the archives for more information.
