ANN ARBOR, MI (AP/WLNS) – The University of Michigan’s media library is selling more than 7,000 16 mm instructional films that were used from the 1940s through the 1970s at its Ann Arbor campus.

Our media partners at MLive say the films, which range in length from several minutes to a few hours, contain some black-and-white clips and some color clips. They cover a wide variety of subjects, including the arts, humanities, social sciences and film study.

Several hundred VHS tapes also will be available. They include documentaries on the arts, humanities, and social sciences as well as instructional programs and some feature films.

The sale is scheduled to take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Argus Building II. The library will accept only cash and checks.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
