I would like to recommend an excellent article by Karen Colby,
describing the development of a new lighting policy at the Montreal
Museum of Fine Arts. "A Suggested Exhibition Policy for Works of Art on
Paper" is published in the Journal of the International Institute for
Conservation - Canadian Group (IIC-CG), Vol.17, 1992.

It describes a lighting policy based on three basic categories of
sensitivity, and provides lists of specific inks, pigments, other media,
and supports in each category.
