Microfilm

During inventorying and cataloging work, notation was made of Illinois newspapers that had not been preserved on microfilm.

The INP used four different vendors for preservation microfilming. These vendors (and the INP) closely adhered to the preservation microfilming guidelines that were mandated by the USNP and the Library of Congress. These preservation microfilming guidelines use a three-generation system.

Three-Generation System
GENERATION first second third
TITLE camera master print master service copy
POLARITY negative negative positive
PURPOSE for archival storage for duplication for patron use
LOCATION stored at Iron Mountain stored at Vendor stored at UIUC Library

The third generation film, or service copy, is the film used by patrons. A service copy of all the microfilm created by the INP is available through interlibrary loan at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library.
