Each format is not divided neatly into series and is available on multiple reels. Also in the collection is a guide covering in more detail what content is on reel, titled, The Commission on Interracial Cooperation papers, 1919-1944 and the Association of Southern Women for the Prevention of Lynching papers, 1930-1942 : a guide to the microfilm editions, edited by Mitchell F. Ducey.
