Reprography Course

Records are evidence and thus need to be preserved. Reprography by means of microfilm copying is considered the most suitable form of preservation against damage caused especially by man. Still photography and microfilms are still in use because the images that are formed cannot be changed or modified. They also save space because of their relatively small size.

Reprography courses are intended for photographers, microfilm handlers and staff who are tasked with still photography and microfilms on an ad-hoc basis in their departments.

  • To provide a basic understanding of the theories and practice of the principles and method of reprography as well as the preservation of photographs and related work.
