The Bob Heiber Collection is made up of student films, 16mm industrial films and 35mm filmstrips produced at Pilot Productions in Evanston, Illinois from 1976 until 1979. For all of the films in the collection, Bob was the film editor and sound mixer. In the later films he was also the director. These films are representative of the kinds of corporate sponsored films made to demonstrate new products or techniques. With the introduction of video technologies at the end of the 1970s much of this work was taken “in-house” to corporate communication departments and 16mm film production for corporate films rapidly declined. In the Bob Heiber Collection, locations range from constructions sites all around the United States as well as scenes filmed around the Chicagoland area.

The David Drazin Collection contains both commercial prints that were created for the home market and home movies that were made at the Holy Family Academy school in Chicago between 1939 and 1946. The commercial films include educational films, a Dick Tracy cartoon, and Charlie Chaplin’s 1916 short “Behind the Screen.” The Holy Family Academy was an all-girls Catholic school on Chicago’s north side, and the home movies document nuns and young girls playing outside and on various outings in and around Chicago, as well as seasonal dance recitals.
The Glick-Berolzheimer Collection contains home movies by Diane Berolzheimer's father Jacob Glick from the mid 1930s through the early 1960s. It also includes home movies made by Diane and her husband Karl Berolzheimer from the mid 1950s through the mid 1970s. The home movies in this collection depict the leisure activities of the larger Glick/Berolzheimer family, rituals of Jewish life, and numerous fishing trips by Mr. Glick.
