The Fisheries and Wildlife Films and Videotapes cover a variety of topics including lectures in three Fisheries and Wildlife Department courses: "Principles of Wildlife Conservation," "Biology of Birds (FW 311)," and "Management Principles of Pacific Salmon in the Northwest (FW 323)." Also included in the collection are reels containing footage of the Salmon River and the Alsea Fish Hatchery as well as footage of a toddler in a backyard. The reels were sent to Department faculty Frank Groves and R. E. Dimick.
An addition to the Fisheries and Wildlife Films and Videotapes (Accession 2014:004) is made up of VHS videotapes produced for distance education classes in fisheries and wildlife topics. Numbering 35 tapes in total, the four courses represented on these video recordings are: "Biology of Fishes" (FW 315), "Biology of Mammals" (FW 317), "Ecology and History: Landscapes of the Columbia Basin" (FW 470/570 & HSTS 470/570), and "Ocean and Marine Law" (LAW 607-a collaborative venture between OSU and the University of Oregon Law School).
