Repairing large maps

From: Rhonda Niven <rniven<-at->

I have a series of large rolled maps/plans on heavy paper, backed
with linen that have become damp during storage, and subsequently
damaged by mould.  These have been dried and are now in need of
repair.  The linen has separated from the paper in places, and the
paper is very soft and 'spongy' in the areas where the mould was.  I
am wondering how best to go about repairing these and is there
anything I can do to save the damaged areas of paper.
