Where can I find vintage NASA animations?

I'm a fan of vintage NASA animations (like this one), but they are hard to find. I suspect that there's an archive of this stuff available to the public somewhere -- maybe a stack of dusty U-Matic tapes at the Library of Congress. Any ideas where I can find more?

I'd start with the scientific visualization studios at http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/ or the deep impact archives at http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/deepimpact/multimedia/Multimedia-collection_archive_1.html.

If you have a specific area of concentration you can contact the NASA branch from whence the project came. Each NASA branch has its own public affairs people who track stuff down all the time.

You might also want to request more information about NASA's records in the National Archives and Records Administration, specifically the motion pictures series in that link -- the description on that page doesn't specify whether any of the films in the collection are animations.
