Preservation of Film Negatives of the Elias del Aguila Collection of the Historical Archive of Centro de la Imagen (EAP1234)

Aims and objectives

This project consists in performing the register, preventive conservation and refrigeration of 2405 items out of the total of 7660 negatives of the Elias del Aguila Collection. We plan to perform the cleaning of the negatives and digitise them with a scanner. Once we have the digital files checked by quality control, they are available for being sent and uploaded online. For the next step, the negatives must be moisture pre-conditioned for 3 months before placing them inside the moisture-proof housing and finally refrigerate them.
