PHOTOGRAPHY

The Reprographic and Digital Services Section provides a photographic service in terms of producing traditional black and white prints from negatives in our well-equipped darkroom.

The NLSA has been microfilming current and historical South African newspapers for many years. The Library keeps master films of each of more than 15 000 microfilm reels, which are used to make copies on request.

Digitisation of collection items is a new initiative in line with international best practice, creating digital records of materials for both preservation and access purposes.

Another feature is the ability to photograph artifacts for exhibition and user purposes. The Cape Town campus uses an in-house studio for basic general photography. Digital video camera technology is used to record events at the National Library for record and exhibition purposes.
