The Moving Image

Association of Moving Image Archivists

The Moving Image
Editors: Donald Crafton and Susan Ohmer
The essential source for new thought in this rapidly expanding field.

The Moving Image explores topics relevant to both the media archivist and the media scholar. The Moving Image deals with crucial issues surrounding the preservation, archiving, and restoration of film, video, and digital moving images. The journal features detailed profiles of moving image collections; interpretive and historical essays about archival materials; articles on archival description, appraisal, and access; behind-the-scenes looks at the techniques used to preserve, restore, and digitize moving images; and theoretical articles on the future of the field.
