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.
