Media can be found in many collections and fonds in the MOA Archives; the media in this General Media collection are those that do not belong to a more specific archival collection, usually because their provenance is not known.

The collection is divided into three series based on media type:

Nota general

History of this collection:

Prior to having an archivist, media at MOA was managed together by record type and not by creator. Over time, the original provenance information was lost for many records created or received by MOA. According to previous documentation, audio recordings and film recordings were managed separately but together they were considered to represent the MOA General Media Collection.

In 1993, J. Cruickshank inventoried the MOA General Media Collection: Audio and assigned numeric identifiers to each media record. These identifiers were referred to as accession numbers, although they were not archival accession numbers. These accession numbers were arbitrary numbers assigned by J. Cruickshank to gain some initial control over the audio holdings in the museum archives. A listing of J. Cruickshank's inventory list with the accession numbers can be found in the archives filing cabinet.

In the late 1990’s under the direction of an archivist, the records listed in the MOA General Media Collection were appraised for their long-term value. Many records were retained but some were deemed as not necessary to retain within the MOA archives. An inventory list of all the records not retained by the archives (and in some instances, the decision for deaccessioning) can be found in the archives filing cabinet. The deaccessioned records were either: destroyed; placed in the library's backlog; given to the Communication's Video Library; or given away to staff for free.

In 1999, the archivist and the archives assistant arranged the MOA General Media Collection into two series: Audio Recordings and Video Recordings.

MOA General Photographs were previously managed separately from the audio and video recordings. Because these are all media formats, however, the MOA General Photograph collection was added to the MOA General Media collection in 2017.
