The paper talks about the mission, objectives, and work of REI Foundation Limited (RFL). It then discusses the collaboration that has been formed between the National Records and Archive Services of Malawi (NARS), RFL, and Tokyo Coon, with the aim of preserving and making the digitized audiovisual collections widely and easily accessible to the public.

The research further discusses how the digitized film collection is connecting users to the archival materials, as well as how it fosters a sense of community as it helps in understanding societies and cultures better and offers an accurate documentary record of events and human actions.

The paper also describes experiences, strategies, techniques, processes, and equipment (hardware and software) that this project is using to digitize, preserve, and provide access to digital collections. The paper concludes with a number of possible strategies that NARS is planning to use in order to increase accessibility of the digitized collections with the aim of seeking input from other professionals.
