Audiovisual Records

Overview

The audiovisual records of the American Unitarian Association, the Universalist Church of America, and the Unitarian Universalist Association include photographs, audiocassette tapes, and film. They document events and activities and portray buildings, individuals, and various organizations and associations. These records do not represent all the audiovisual materials available; photographs, tapes, etc., may also be found in other collections.

Using the Collections

All collections are stored off-site and must be requested at least two business days in advance (see How to Use the Collections). Every collection is identified with a bMS number. In most of the finding aids, the bMS number is followed by a slash and a box number. Please note the bMS number and box number of the collection you are interested in, and contact the archives (617.496.5153 or 617.384.7904) to inquire about the collection or to make an appointment.
