The Textile Census contains an additional 5,000 black-and-white photographs of Byzantine textiles located in museums in the United States and Canada. The photographs document individual objects in these collections, many of which are further described on individual documentation sheets. There is also a separate Technique file, with photographs and documentation cards documenting aspects such as weft material, direction of spinning, and weaving technique. The collection also includes the research materials compiled by Bellinger in her work on the Textile Census, including correspondence, object reports, photographs, negatives, slides, and 8 mm films
