AMARC inherited the SCONUL (Society of College, National and University Libraries) sponsorship of the British volumes in the Dated and Datable Manuscripts series and Medieval Manuscripts in British Libraries. The final volume of the latter, vol. V, containing addenda and indexes, was published at the end of 2002. Volumes of Dated and Datable covering the British Library (1979), Oxford (1984), and Cambridge (1988) and London collections other than those in the British Library (2003) have been published, often with the financial support of AMARC.

It has also sponsored the Reading University Location Register of English Literary Manuscripts and Letters.

Other projects fostered by the Association include the Census of Medieval Binding Structures and an English codicological vocabulary.
