    Hi all,

    Just stumbled on this potentially interesting publication concerning conservation and preservation of analog materials, including photographic:

    Preservation Science Survey
    An Overview of Recent Developments in Research on the Conservation of Selected Analog Library and Archival Materials

    http://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub95/pub95.pdf

    It is a survey of state of affairs in 2000 by Henk J. Porck and René Teygeler of the Council on Library and Information Resources (http://www.clir.org) in Washington, D.C.

    Very interesting, I just browsed fast into it to the microwave oven treatment for paper (that's something I've got at home).

    Also very interesting, for those who don't know it:

    Henry Wilhelm and Carol Brower, The permanence and care of colour photograph,

    A free PDF is available on the site. The book can be bought for $42 + shipping, also by phone.
