Permanent paper policy document available

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Thursday, April 7, 1994
Thanks to Ellen McCrady <czbb064 [at] access__texas__gov> for passing the word
that a paper entitled "Second Report to Congress on the Joint Resolution
to Establish a National Policy on Permanent Papers", December 31, 1993
is available on LC Marvel (gopher to, port 70). The
document is also available in Conservation OnLine in the database
cool-cfl. A brief description:

   "It is the policy of the United States that Federal records, books,
    and publications of enduring value be produced on acid free
    permanent papers."  In Section 3, the law further specifies that the
    Librarian of Congress, the Archivist of the United States, and the
    Public Printer shall jointly monitor the Federal Government's
    progress in implementing the national policy declared in Section 1
    regarding acid free permanent papers, and shall report to the
    Congress regarding such progress on December 31, 1991, December 31,
    1993, and December 31, 1995.  This is the second of the three
    required reports.  It summarizes actions and events during 1992 and
    1993 that have supported and assisted implementation of the law, and
    also discusses actions and events that have the potential for
    hampering the rate at which implementation moves forward.
