Copy films are widely used for reference material where a durable copy is required or to supplement existing archive material.

This is available in two formats:

  • Silver positive film produces a positive output (black text on a white background) and has approximately 500 years archival life (if stored to ISO standards).
  • Diazo film produces a negative output (white text on a black background) and has approximately 50 years archival life. (dependant on usage).
  • Both copying mediums are supplied on archival quality 35 mm films by an independent service provider.
  • The turnaround time for the microfilm copying service is 10 working days – this does not include delivery time.
