Here are research projects undertaken by NYU's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program
- A Mellon
Foundation–funded 2–year partnership project between MIAP, NYU–Libraries, the University of California Berkeley, and Loyola University (New Orleans), seeking to meet the
challenges of preserving out–of–print VHS titles in circulating Research Library collections by creating a 'roadmap' for navigating issues of replaceability, intellectual
property, and technological obsolescence.

- A research initiative funded by the US Institute
for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) that seeks to generate awareness of the special requirements for preserving audiovisual records and improve staffing for moving image archiving and
preservation in libraries.
- MIAP students collaborated with Anthology Film Archives to honor the preservation
work of avant-garde filmmaker, preservationist, and current MIAP Adjunct Professor, Bill Brand. This project culminated in a series of film screenings at Anthology Film Archives and a
published book of essays contributed by members of the preservation community.
- A collaborative project between NYU MIAP, the NYU Digital
Library, Public Television stations WNET in New York and WGBH in Boston, and PBS.
- Research Projects, Workshops, and Resources associated with disaster
planning and the recovery of moving image and sound materials.
