The collection is defined by four series: (1) Serial Publications: Out-of-print Publications; (2) Serial Publications: Forward Day by Day; and (3) Books and Pamphlets. (A fourth series of records is separately cataloged). The Out-of-print Publications in Series 1 are organized alphabetically by serial name and then chronologically by year. Series 2 consists of one Forward Movement serial publication which is still in-print – "Forward Day by Day,"and is arranged chronologically by year.

Forward Movement. Records

A small and somewhat artificial collection of the organization’s records are maintained as Series 4 of the Records of Forward Movement. It includes early records, especially the Joint Commission’s report, a scrapbook (compiled by the Bishop Edward L. Parsons), correspondence and some ephemera. The Parsons scrapbook was left intact for its artifactual value. It serves as a record of the early years of Forward Movement from 1935-1937. Catalogs make up a large part of the records and document the agency's publication run. Some promotional materials exist from 1934-1943.

The collection includes sermons, correspondence, photographs, and audio and video recordings.
