(5 ILCS 170/2) (from Ch. 116, par. 36)
    Sec. 2. Any public officer of the state may cause any or all records, papers or documents made or kept by him to be photographed, microphotographed or reproduced on film or by other processes which accurately reproduce or form a durable medium for reproducing the original. The reproduction of records by any photographic, microphotographic or silver halide processes, when such reproductions are to serve as permanent records, shall comply with the regulations and standards of the State Records Commission. Other durable media using machine readable techniques may be used as an alternative to film, provided the medium is non-erasable and cannot be altered once the original document has been recorded.
