Handling books during cataloguing

From: Richard Saunders <alirs>
Date: Thursday, April 28, 1994
About "book snakes":  the ones we had made consisted of an inner tube of
10-oz. cotton duck canvass filled with steel bird shot, and an outer
sleeve made of velvet.  The velvet nap kept the full weight directly off
of the drawings (ours were used mostly for architectural drawings). The
long shape could be draped across an open book, or coiled below as a
prop for one cover.
