The National Audio-Visual Conservation Center maintains the NBC Collection in both the Recorded Sound and Moving Image sections, and provides access through the Research Centers in Washington, D.C. Please contact either Research Center below for research assistance, as collections are stored off-site and advance notice is needed to prepare items.
