Sheet music

From: Patricia Palmer <pepalmer>
Date: Thursday, March 21, 1991
At Virginia Commonwealth University, we house all our sheet music in
document preservation binders which are available from a number of
vendors. University Products had the lowest price the last time we
ordered. Looking at the current University Products Archival Quality
Materials catalog, I see they offer 5 pre-cut sizes and special sizes on
request. The design is simple:  a pressboard binder with an expandable
(to 1/4") inner folder that closes with flaps.

Our music librarian feels very strongly that sheet music should not be
bound.  The binders provide the protection and stability we are looking
for.  They are constructed of acid-free, lignin-free stock and sit well
on the shelf in Princeton files.
