The Abbey Newsletter is one of two newsletters issued by Abbey Publications (a nonprofit tax-exempt corporation) to disseminate news and information to people involved in any aspect of conservation of library and archival materials, and to stimulate and encourage the field. Nearly all of the income of Abbey Publications cones from the sale of subscriptions, but since the field is small and the cost of gathering information is rather high, these fees do not cover all costs. The deficit is made up from voluntary contributions.
Last year a total of 7.5% of income, or $3962, was received in contributions. This year, $1222 has been received, which the Editor and Trustees acknowledge with gratitude:
Bridgeport National Bindery
Joan T. Batchelor
M. Susan Barger Bookmakers
Julia V. Miller
Northeast Document Conservation Center
Jeffrey M. Rigby
Hilda A. Robbins
Wei T'o Associates

No paid advertisements are accepted, except from advertising agencies placing job ads. Any notice that is appropriate and newsworthy will be printed if there is room for it. Written contributions and bits of news are welcome. Claims for issues never received, or received in damaged condition, will be honored within a year of publication. A complete list of back issues is available.
The Abbey Newsletter is selectively indexed in Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts, the Institute of Paper Chemistry Abstract Bulletin, and Graphic Arts Literature Abstracts. All issues but v.1 #2 are in print, and all volumes have their own index.
The Editor encourages readers to photocopy freely from the Newsletter; but before making more than 20 copies of any part, permission must be obtained from the Editor. Abbey Publications is a nonprofit tax-exempt corporation (tax 112 #87-0436104). Its other publication is Alkaline Paper Advocate.
