Notably, a subseries is dedicated to her Oscar win at the 1978 Academy Awards for the Children of Canada series instalment "I'll Find a Way"--including many photographs, newspaper articles, letters of congratulations, and even sound recordings of coworkers' reactions to the win.

The fonds contains copies of most of Shaffer's films, mostly as reels and videotapes but including several DVDs. This includes the Children of Jerusalem and Children of Canada series, as well as many other documentary short films directed by Shaffer and footage of several interviews. Numerous photographs of cast and crew during and after filming--in the form of prints, slides, and negatives--can also be found in the fonds.
