HMML’s Malta Study Center began preservation work in Malta in 1973, and is now the oldest, continuing microfilm and digital preservation project at HMML. The archival, manuscript, music, and art collections from Malta and Gozo contain records dating from the 11th through the 20th centuries, a millennium of Mediterranean and European history witnessed through the island crossroads. The Malta Study Center's endowment allows it to maintains active preservation projects that serve the dual goal of preserving manuscripts and archives located in Malta and Gozo, as well as the records of the the Sovereign Military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes, and of Malta.
