Arrangement of Series O

The Peace Collection has a large amount of audio-visual material in various formats relating to SANE. Some items were published or produced by the organization; others are materials which were collected and used by SANE staff members.

Some of the audio-visual material has been cataloged by SCPC staff and will be found by using Tripod, the card catalog, or special lists of audio-visual material. Additional material, much of which came to SCPC in the early 1990s, has not yet been cataloged but is available for use by researchers. This listing is an attempt to pull together in one place the information on SANE A-V material.

This list is divided into the following sections:

Videotapes

Films and filmstrips
Slide sets and multi-media kits
Sound disc recordings
Audiocassettes and reel-to-reel tapes
Lists of material in various formats
Computer diskettes

NOTE: Photographs are listed in Series D and are shelved with the SCPC Photograph Collection.
