The collection has been organized into seven series: Information Packets, Legislation & Political Activities, Organization Records, Subject Files, Publications, and Posters & Artifacts.
Series 1, Information Packets, is arranged chronologically. The Information Packets are photocopies assembled in notebooks by SALC for distribution at meetings, such as at the MSU Board of Trustees meetings. The titles listed are copied from the titles printed on the notebook covers.
Series 2, Legislation & Political Activities, is arranged chronologically, and is comprised of information collected and created for the various political activities in which SALC participated and for the various pieces of legislation that SALC supported.
Series 3, Organizational records, is arranged chronologically, and is comprised of correspondence to and from SALC, minutes and notes from meetings, membership lists, and financial records.
Series 4, Subject Files, is arranged alphabetically, and is comprised of information collected by SALC on various subjects of interest.
Series 5, Publications, is arranged alphabetically and contains publications, such as newsletters and catalogs, from other organizations. The books and videotapes in this series have been cataloged in the MSU Libraries online catalog and are shelved separately in the American Radicalism Collection.
Series 6, Newspaper Clippings, is arranged chronologically, except for a few subject folders. It is comprised of newspaper clippings on apartheid, divestment, South Africa, Namibia, Southern Africa, and the international anti-apartheid movement, collected by the Beemans in support of SALC activities.
Series 7, Posters and Artifacts, is arranged by the type and size of the artifact, and is comprised of posters produced and used by SALC (particularly for their campus film series), and objects, such as clothing and protest buttons, created by SALC.
