Subject: Mass deacidification

Mass deacidification

From: Janet Gertz <gertz>
Date: Wednesday, January 10, 2001
Columbia University Libraries is undertaking a pilot mass
deacidification project with Preservation Technologies using their
Bookkeeper process to treat Chinese monographs printed on acidic
paper. We also hope to treat Urdu monographs next year.

I would be interested in hearing from other libraries who are
currently employing mass deacidification, or plan to in the near
future.  What materials are you treating, and what was your decision
process in choosing those materials?  Did avoiding duplication with
other deacidification efforts play a role in your decision?  Do you
put a note in the 583 field to identify deacidified materials?
