In reply to Jan Paris' recent request for information on book drops, I
had a conversation the other day with Gregor Trinkaus-Randall and found
out that a document on book drops has just been written.  For further
information, contact:

My friendly library insurance agent supplied me with a copy of the
National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) report on the 1986 Los
Angeles public library fire the other day.  The following citation
information is taken off the cover:

    NFPA.  "Investigation Report Central Library Fire Los Angeles, CA.
    April 29, 1986."  prepared by Michael S. Isner, Fire Protection
    Specialist, Fire Investigations and Applied Research Div.  44 pgs.

Table of Contents lists:  Introduction, Background, The Incident,
Analysis, Discussion, and Appendices.

NFPA Executive Office:  Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.  Phone:
(617) 770-3000.

P.S.  I just received my issue of the "American Archivist" devoted
entirely to preservation topics and edited by Anne Kenney (Cornell).
