L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation
In 1996, George Eastman House established the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation, which  teaches the restoration, preservation, and archiving of motion pictures. The certificate program offered by the school provides students with a comprehensive education covering the theory, methods, and practice of archival work and film preservation. Students work closely with George Eastman House staff, receiving practical, hands-on training in the maintenance, care, and storage of motion pictures.

UCLA's Moving Image Archive Studies
In September 1998, the UCLA Film and Television Archive received a three-year grant to develop a new graduate study program in Moving Image Archive Studies. The Archive Studies program is being developed in collaboration with UCLA's Department of Film and Television and the Department of Information Studies. This program is the one most like the traditional MLS programs with which archivists are familiar, granting MIAS degrees. The formal program began in the Fall of 2002.
