The Blues Archive contains commercial documentaries and concert footage as well as non-commercial footage of blues festivals, house parties, and oral histories.
While archival holdings contain footage on various film stock, BETA, and U-matic tapes, user access copies of material are available on DVD and VHS.
The majority of video available to researchers can be found through the library catalog. To limit your search to videos in the Blues Archive, use the catalog's advanced search, and limit the location to "Special Collections Blues," and the material type to "Videos/Films." Other videos can be searched in an inventory located in Special Collections (an online version will be made available soon).
