Educational Media Collection

The Vintage 16mm Film Collection (aka The EMC) contains over 3,600 16mm moving image films that cover a diverse range of topics. Formerly housed by Classroom Support Services, the Vintage 16mm Collection was transferred to the UW Libraries Media Center in 2010. Due to preservation concerns, the VHS and 16mm films in the Collection are no longer available for screening in their original formats. If you are a UW instructor or student who wishes to access one of these titles, email medialib@uw.edu with your request.
