interests of AMIA, while also providing an open forum for archivists,
librarians, technical specialists, scholars and academics interested in our

interests of the membership, including its special interest groups for news
and documentary collections, amateur film, regional archives, and academic

materials, including historic and contemporary film, television, and video,
new and emerging digital technologies, as well as paper and

* Traditional scholarly papers and historical essays, especially those
utilizing research in film archival collections
* In-depth examinations of specific preservation and restoration
