The Soviet Lithuanian Union of Artists was an influential cultural organisation made up of local artists, painters, sculptors and other workers in the field of art. The organisation brought together artists, and was responsible for the spread of Soviet values in art. The collection holds many documents, including transcripts of meetings and congresses of artists, and reports of artists' activities, which show that some local artists were eager to support the Lithuanian cultural heritage, and promote the extension of the boundaries of modernism in the late Soviet period.

"Vidici" [Horizons] was one of the most prominent Yugoslav magazines for literature and culture. During the socialist period the journal was often targeted by the authorities and repeatedly banned, due to its criticism of the Communist party’s social and cultural policies. The magazine "Vidici" is kept as part of the collection "Periodicals", and does not represent a separate library unit. All the available numbers are kept in two institutions - the National Library of Serbia and the University Library of Belgrade.
Zbigniew Dłubak collection consists of photographs, sketches, and notes, and was one of the first collections to be digitalized, catalogued, and managed by the Archeology of Photography Foundation. The objective of the Foundation was twofold. Firstly, the Foundation aimed to present the heritage of one of the most prominent Polish visual artist working in the socialist time without oversimplifying and putting him into official – dissent culture dichotomy, but to show his place in the wider context of European visual arts. Secondly, the Foundation digitalized and presented various parts of Dłubak’s collection using newest methods of archival preservation and created a fully researchable content. Part of the photographs included in the Dłubak's collection was never shown before to a wider public and was kept in the Dłubak’s private archive.
