Sonawane said the technique of using projector and screen to display the reel documentaries gradually became obsolete in last few years, which resulted in somewhat negligence towards the collection at the library.
Shamrao Mahanubhav, who represents the staff of Maharashtra State Institute of Audio-Visual Education and other such government institutes, blamed government apathy for the loss of rare documentaries.
The institute, which comes under the State's School Education and Sports department, conducts training sessions for teachers on improving their skill-set using audio-visual aids.
