Musty odors in books

From: Sue Dunlap <sdunlap>
Date: Tuesday, August 16, 1994
I had a call from a patron who has books stored in her basement.  They
now have a musty odor.  From her description, the books are not wet, no
mold is present, they just smell bad.  I suggested she air them outside
for awhile. Does anyone else have any ideas?
