In the main section, 400 papers are listed by their main use, and by company. Telephone numbers are provided for each of the 33 paper companies. All of the papers meet the specifications of ANSI/NISO Z39.48-1992, Permanence of Paper for Publications and Documents in Libraries and Archives.
Six brief chapters follow the lists of papers. All chapters but those by Wilson and Adelstein have been revised.
