The National Audiovisual Documentation and Preservation Center (NADPC) was established to realize the desire of the National Archives of Malaysia (NAM) to expand its role in managing audiovisual materials which is one of the valuable treasures of the nation and should be preserved for future reference. NADPC's vision is to become one stop center for the nation’s audiovisual materials starting from collecting, processing, and preserving and to provide research service activities on audiovisual materials.
- To enhance and empower NAM's role in tracking, acquiring, and documenting the audiovisual materials received from various resources such as government departments/agencies, private sector, statutory bodies, private collection, and others either from local or overseas;
- To preserve and conserve all types of audiovisual material as a national heritage; and
- To provide reference and research facilities using audiovisual materials.
