ASTM Proceedings on paper aging

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Sunday, August 14, 1994
The following was received from niso [at] enh__nist__gov:

    The Proceedings of the "Workshop on the Effects of Aging on Printing
    and Writing Papers" sponsored by the American Society for Testing
    and Materials (ASTM) on July 6-8, 1994 is now available from NISO
    Press. The three-day workshop provided a forum for scientists from
    the U.S., Canada, and Europe to provide input into a proposed
    research project that would investigate lignin's role in paper
    deterioration and the development of accelerated aging tests that
    could be used to predict the useful life of a given type of paper.

    Topics include:

        *   "Paper Permanence:  Present Needs and Future Opportunities"

        *   "The Mechanisms of Chemical Deterioration of Paper"

        *   "Artificial Aging of Paper:  Correlation with Natural Aging"

        *   "The Optical Properties of Lignin-Containing Papers as They
            Relate to Paper Permanence"

        *   "Accelerated Aging of Paper:  Can it Really Foretell the
            Permanence of Paper?"

        *   The recent Canadian Cooperative Paper Research Program.

    The Proceedings of the ASTM Institute for Standards Research
    Workshop on the Effects of Aging on Printing and Writing Papers is
    available for $95.00 (plus shipping and handling) from NISO Press.
