Australia does not have 27 permanent papers yet. In the last issue, we reported that we had a list of Australian papers that met the SAA Interim Standard of permanence. That should have read, "that are expected by Associated Pulp and Paper Mills to meet the country's SAA Interim Standard of permanence."

Leanne Brandis, Scientist in the Preservation Services at the National Library of Australia, wrote to say that the interim Standard for the Permanence of Uncoated Paper and Paperboard is not yet published, though it should be soon thus no papers have yet been officially tested for compliance with this Standard. When it is published, about 40 papers from both major paper manufacturers, APM as well as APPM, are expected to comply.
