Of particular note are images of the coaches and players on the 1980/81 women's basketball and gymnastics teams, businesses and street scenes in downtown Corvallis, and the Vina Moses Center.
All of the images are mounted, color 35 mm slides.
An addition to the collection (Accession 2015:023) consists of video recordings generated by KBVR TV that document a combination of student programming filmed in the studio and various campus events recorded by KBVR staff. Numbering 1087 recordings in total, this transfer is made up of VHS videotapes, DVDs, mini-DV cassettes, U-Matic tapes, DAT tapes, and DV Cam tapes. The programs produced in-house for broadcast include shows featuring newscasts, local band performances, comedy skits, exercise workouts, movie reviews, and cooking demonstrations. Some of the recordings were produced as student assignments for videography classes. Recordings of footage taken of campus activities outside the studio include: lectures by visiting speakers, international cultural nights, ASOSU election debates, intercollegiate athletic games (primarily Women's Basketball), Peace Jam events, Interfraternity Sing performances, campus forums, the Ms. OSU Pageant, Battle of the Bands, and "Rock the Vote" events.
