papers.  Fascicules are pamphlet-style bindings made up of blank,
archival quality paper sheets with hooked guards as compensation.
Papers are attached using a hinge of Japanese paper and wheat starch
paste onto Fascicule sheets, usually one or two items per page.

Course Agenda:  A short introduction to Fasciculing.  Construction
of Fascicules and how to guard items into Fascicules.
