The paper talks about strategies and workflow which the national archives of Malawi is using to digitise 16 mm reel to reel collection. With limited resources, availability of technology and high end film digitisation equipment, the presentation discusses how the institution has overcome these challenges by collaborating with REI Foundation limited and devising a cost efficient means of rescuing this endangered collection which is rapidly deteriorating and fast becoming obsolete. The paper will conclude by discussing experiences, outcomes, strategies, techniques, processes, equipment being used in this project to digitise, preserve and provide access to the digitised reel collections.
