The bulk of JOPA's holdings are within its Manuscripts and Photographs Section. Approximately two thirds is foldered and housed in archival boxes; the remainder, primarily administrative records, are housed in storage cartons.
Only the collection-level descriptions that follow are available on the WWW. Some printed, in-house finding guides and inventories have been produced. More detailed arrangement and description via electronic media is planned.Currently the best access to JOPA's historical and ethnographical resources is via Microfilm Collections (Published Guides).
Although most photographs are presently interfiled with manuscripts, an intensive effort is underway to remove them into a separate collection. (See Photo archives). To use photographic images for research or publication, see Use ofPhotographs.
