Bekir Arpag Teaching Collection

Bekir Arpag was on the faculty of the RIT School of Printing Management and Sciences from 1953 to 1987, where he taught courses on lithographic platemaking technologies using film-based processes.

The Bekir Arpag Teaching Collection spans the 1970s through the mid-1990s, and contains audiovisual materials used by Arpag in his courses at the School of Printing Management and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology. It holds 432 color transparencies in 35 mm format, most of which were used in Arpag's presentations on lithographic printing platemaking machinery and techniques. Two slide series have printed transcripts or captions for lectures on the Opti-Copy IMPOSER, and Rachwal Industries. Also present are two audio cassettes with titles Introduction to Litho: Stripping Flats & Burning Plates and GSI AUTOPREP 5000, and one untitled cassette. Included in the collection are 73 slides of the Rochester Institute of Technology campus and teaching facilities at the School of Printing Management and Sciences.
