In 2005, when I was managing the Poster Session, we had a poster on
the use of invisible marking inks for identifying rare books and
documents: "Invisible Ink on Documents" Sonja P. Reid, Graduate
Student in Conservation, University of Texas

The abstract was published in the AIC Abstracts from the 2005 annual
meeting. Perhaps you can locate Ms. Reid to obtain more detailed
information about her findings.
