Training materials on preservation microfilming

The National Library of Australia launched its new training
materials 'Training in Preservation Microfilming' in mid October

The National Library of Australia, in collaboration with the State
Library of South Australia and under the auspices of IFLA PAC, has
produced a set of preservation microfilming training material
consisting of 10 modules, 6 wall charts, a logbook, a learning
guide, a glossary/index and a small kit of practical training aids.
The training material, Training in Preservation Microfilming, is the
result of an IFLA PAC survey on microfilming training needs in the
South East Asia and Pacific region conducted in 2001.

The National Library of Australia is distributing Training in
Preservation Microfilming to National Libraries and Archives in the
region, including those institutions and individuals who responded
to the IFLA-PAC survey. The content of Training in Preservation
Microfilming will continue to be available from the Library's
website. However, the practical training aids are only available in
limited quantities and the library hopes that you can make Training
in Preservation Microfilming and the practical training aids
available to those institutions and individuals in your region that
may require it.  A distribution list of institutions that hold the
material will be available on the NationalLibrary's website.

Training in Preservation Microfilming was written by Heather Brown,
Preservation Manager at the State Library of South Australia. It
conforms to the accredited Australian preservation microfilming
curriculum, and when delivered by an accredited agency, may be used
for formal qualifications or to recognize current competencies. The
resource could also be used as a guide to microfilming basics for
those not wishing to undertake formal training.

Training in Preservation Microfilming was primarily developed for
use in the Asia Pacific region and is in English. It is available in
several formats, including PDF and CD. See the following URL for
more details, <URL:>.
There are a limited number of additional printed copies available
and priority will be given to those individuals and organizations
with no or unreliable access to the internet. Please contact me on
the address below with the details of your situation so that copies
can be reserved for you.

Please contact me if you require further information about the
training material.
