I am a 3rd Year Applied Museum Studies student at Algonquin College
in Ottawa, Ontario.  Presently I am conducting research on the
development and conservation of blueprints.  I have been searching
for the following publications, however have had little luck in
finding these sources.  If anyone has information as to where I can
acquire this information I would greatly appreciate their

Also, I am looking for a good source on the treatment of cyanotypes
but have yet to come across a valuable resource.  I would greatly
appreciate recommendations of credible sources on the care and
conservation of cyanotypes.
