This [Surface cleaning paper] brings up another question with regard
to Lisa Mibach's concern over the new popularity of PVOH and Mark
Vine's question about the use of Plexol B500.  The CCI seems to do
so much work on practical problems in conservation while the
Conservation Analytical Laboratory seems to be less interested in
such problems in the past 5 or 6 years.  Again I have to wonder why
we practicing conservators have to take up the slack, doing our own
original research for which we can look to no public or foundation
source for support, while the CAL is supposed to be doing this work.
One wonders what our tax money is paying for?  I certainly hope
Bert's changing the name to cover analysis of materials won't end up
in a lot of belly button contemplation with little practical
