William Jones Film and Video Collection is now an extensive research archive that supports instruction and research for the Meadows School, SMU Libraries and the global moving image preservation and research community.
Its holdings total more than 50,000 items, including film prints and negatives in all formats, videotapes, print materials, antique camera equipment, TV news film (including WFFA and KRLD) from the 1950s through the 1970s, and much more.
