Subject: Glassine


From: Lauren Jones <collectionscare<-at->

I am the Curator - Collections Care at the Royal Engineers Museum in
Kent, UK.  I have read recently that glassine could be used as a
slip sheet for between prints and drawings (Margaret Holben Ellis'
Care of Prints and Drawings).  But when I mentioned this to a
visiting conservator, she was a bit dubious about its use.  So, can
anyone confirm the good or bad points of using glassine, I have now
purchased a huge roll, at some expense, from Preservation Equip Ltd
UK who pitch it as "transparent, smooth with a pH of 7.0,

I want to use it between unframed prints, posters, maps and plans,
and within photograph albums to prevent abrasion.
