Film and Video

  • Many of the items included in this guide are one-of-a-kind films in fragile condition; therefore, they may not be available for patron viewing.
  • Researchers wishing to view VHS tapes and 16 mm films may do so at the University Archives when a University Archives staff member is available to assist the researcher.
  • Viewing times will be dictated by staff availability.
  • Although University Archives is currently unable to provide viewing access to the other moving image formats (e.g., S-VHS, Betacam, 35 mm film) occasionally found in the holdings, the staff of University Archives will attempt to faciliate access to recordings in the collections as much as possible.

Note to Researcher: The University of Missouri-Columbia campus Record Groups below are denoted by a 'C' prefix (such as C:1/25/2). University of Missouri System-Wide and Central Administration Record Groups contain a 'UW' prefix (as in UW:4/0/2).
