Websites were initially selected by curators and captured through the use of The California Digital Library's Web Archiving Service in 2007 as part of the Labor Unions and Organizations (U.S.) Web Archive. In 2015, these websites were migrated to Archive-It. Archive-It uses web crawling technology to capture websites at a scheduled time and displays only an archived copy, from the resulting WARC file, of the website. In circa 2017, the original URL associated with this collection, http://www.actorsequity.org/home.asp, became defunct. In 2018, the new URL, https://www.actorsequity.org/, was added to the web archive. The accession number associated with this website is 2019.095. https://askifitsequity.com/, http://everyoneonstage.com/, http://www.actorsequityfoundation.org/, and http://equityleague.org/ were added to the web archive.

Also in 2014, the thesis in Box 363 was discovered in the repository and added to the collection.

In August 2017, Jasmine Larkin processed Series X: Unprocessed Materials. Loose materials found in the boxes were housed in archival folders. Overstuffed or damaged folders were replaced with archival folders. No attempt has been made to rearrange folders or materials within the boxes. Dates for the materials were added to the finding aid. Materials in Series X were intellectually added to pre-existing series within the finding aid as appropriate. Series X: Unprocessed Materials was then renamed Series X: Photographs and Ephemera.
