PARC owns and manages the John Wall Archive, which charts the making of the Directory of British Photographic Collections, published in 1977. An important part of the archive is the extensive set of card index files, which note and describe photo collections included in the Directory. Many of these may now not exist- due to digitalisation, absorption into global picture libraries and the loss of small, personal collections. The short film The John Wall Archive of the Directory of British Photographic Collections (PARC, 2014) made by Robin Christian will also be shown during Moose Film.
