I want to take the opportunity to point out that an extensive
annotated bibliography on cellulose nitrate, produced as part of the
NEH funded Wisconsin Cellulose Nitrate Film Study, is available
here:

In addition to annotations, every article is tagged from a
controlled list. That list, which can be used to limit a search for
articles relevant only to CN objects, is available here:
