The Reprography Division microfilms historical documents and newspapers, both old and current newspapers and periodicals in English as well as regional languages and provides various reprographic facilities to the scholars who consult research material in our Library. The aim is to augment the research resources of the Library and improve accessibility to rare newspaper material while also effectively preserving them. The Division has created more than 20,000 microfilm rolls of old and current newspapers, periodicals and archival records both in English and regional languages.
The Preservation Unit is a part of the Reprography Division which is engaged in the conservation of rare documents, using a variety of methods for preservation and upkeep of historical documents such as lamination, pasting with tissue and bond paper and binding. Restorative procedures like washing of documents for removal of patches, minor repair of documents, fumigation of library holdings and repair and recasting of bound volumes are also carried out here.
