Archive Research & Study Center


The Archive Research & Study Center (ARSC) coordinates onsite research access to the collections of the UCLA Film & Television Archive, including the significant holdings of the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation, the largest publicly accessible LGBT moving image collection in the world.  The Archive's general collection of over 350,000 holdings also includes thousands of hours of moving images relevant to the study of LGBT issues, artists and notable people, with network television series and specials, Hollywood and independent feature films, documentaries and news and public affairs programs (including In the Life episodes and production footage) among the types of materials available for research viewing at ARSC. 

General information for numerous Outfest UCLA Legacy Project collections and Archive general collection LGBT resources can be found here.

The Archive's general catalog and News and Public Affairs (NAPA) collection also include individual and collection level records for titles relevant to LGBT subjects.
