Deterioration of Agfachrome slides

In reference to J. Claire Dean's query about 'Deterioration of
Agfachrome slides' in Conservation DistList Instance: 13:29 Friday,
November 12, 1999:

As you do not have funding for photographic duplication, scanning
the slides might be an alternative.

An interesting web site on scanning is <URL:>
This site has sections on: 'Colour Correction of Faded Slides' with
illustrations of deteriorated Ektachrome slides; and 'Transparent
Media Adaptor--will it work for 35mm slides'. Of course, you would
then have the problem of preserving the electronic image.
