Educational Programs

Formal Programs

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.

Ryerson University's Master of Arts in Photographic Preservation 
This program brings together photographic historians, scientists, practitioners, and museum professionals to teach the material science, theory and history of photography, photographic processes and museum and archives practices.

Tisch School of the Arts' Moving Image Archiving & Preservation (MIAP)
This two-year M.A. program trains future professionals to manage collections of film, video, new media, and other digital works. The MIAP site contains detailed information on the program's curriculum as well as resources, articles, news and images relevant to students and the professional community.

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.

University of East Anglia Film Archives (EAFA)
Since 1990, EAFA has run a unique Film Archiving Masters course with the Film Studies sector at the University of East Anglia. This course is taught by David Cleveland and Jane Alvey using EAFA resources. There are teaching visits to the National Film and Television Archive and other UK archives. All students do a work placement at a film archive of their choice. Graduates are now working in film archives around the world.


Our Mission

Special Collections Research Center is home to UK Libraries' collection of rare books, Kentuckiana, the University Archives, the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, the King Library Press, the Bert T. Combs Appalachian Collection, and the Wendell H. Ford Public Policy Research Center.

The mission of the Special Collections Research Center is to locate and preserve materials documenting the social, cultural, economic, and political history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Materials are acquired regardless of format and include both primary and secondary sources; Kentuckiana is collected comprehensively. Special Collections maintains the records management program for all records generated by the University and serves as its archival repository for permanent records. As part of the mission, the Special Collections Research Center advances and supports the research, teaching, and scholarship of the University and beyond by preserving and providing access to its holdings.
