Paper And Page Mending
The Realities Of Context
The Library Collections Conservation Discussion Group
Thursday, 10 June 1999
7-9 p.m.

What factors influence and guide our selection of materials for page
and paper repairs of general collections library materials? Does an
institution exist that can afford to use Japanese paper and paste on
all their materials? Is there an institution that exists that wants
to? Can we afford not too? Is anyone happy with the current heat set
tissues offered? Are they any better than or equivalent to archival
tape? What are our treatment options really and what is our comfort
level with them? What factors prevent us from achieving what we
think is best for our collections? We will seek in small discussion
groups to grapple with these issues by sharing our experiences and
reevaluating our repair strategies.

The session will include a  brief overview of the composition and
history of pressure sensitive tapes by Elissa OLoughlin of the
National Archives. Ms. OLoughlin has done extensive research and
taught widely on the subject and we are very pleased to have her
join us as instructor and consultant for the session.
