About the Labs

The links below provide more information about the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA's) Moving Image and Sound Preservation Labs. Preservation responsibilities are split between two labs, with one focusing on audio and video records, and the other focusing on motion picture film records. As some NARA records contain multiple instances across different media types, the two labs have a collaborative relationship.
