The ABMC seeks to foster the use of original source materials by researchers engaged in the study of the biblical text and the preparation of critically responsible texts of the Bible for use in universities, colleges, seminaries, synagogues, and churches, and for reliable translations. We offers access to the film collections both on-site and through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

In addition, the ABMC has published several texts. Our publications are intended to provide scholars with better tools with which to work.

Finally, the ABMC publishes a newsletter, The Folio, which is intended to inform scholars and the general public about the ABMC activities and services. Each issue includes articles from scholars discussing various aspects of text research.
