The Collection

PSAT will soon have a guide to its collection online for researchers and the public. Online visitors can peruse through the contents of each fonds (a 'fonds' is a body of materials collected and donated by a person or organization).

The Mindfreedom fonds has been surveyed first because of its international scope. The following list describes some of the materials we found in the Mindfreedom fonds:

The Archive includes many other kinds of materials, including hospital realia (archivist speak for 'stuff'), sculptures, rug hookings, drawings, posters, t-shirts, buttons, recordings, a library of donated books, and back copies of the magazine Phoenix Rising.

These are all the fonds in our present collection. Each contains many boxes of materials which have yet to be surveyed and released.
