Does MGM maintain a still photo archive?

Along with keeping a great number of their prints and negs, did they also archive their stills files?

All of their vintage stills, from the 1920s-1960 are at the Margaret Herrick Library. MGM/UA stills from the 1930s-1980s are also part of the Herrick Collection, don't know if the inventory has been added to the collection list.
