Subseries includes photographic material collected to document the organizational memory of MOA. Photographs primarily depict the events and functions that have occurred in the museum, as well as events and functions that took place outside the museum that involved MOA or MOA staff members. The subseries also contains candid shots of MOA staff members, photographs of different parts of the museum, and photographs related to MOA that have made their way into the MOA archives.
Subseries consists of sound recordings made or collected by the Museum of Anthropology and its staff. Some recordings were created or collected for research purposes (such as interviews); others are final products intended for some type of distribution (such as documentaries).
Series consists of the video recordings about, by, or related to the Museum of Anthropology. Video recordings can be found in many collections and fonds in the MOA Archives; the recordings in this General Media collection are those that do not belong to a more specific archival collection, usually because their provenance is not known.
