This discussion page was started in July 2014 to collect ideas for improving the chapter. It includes the suggestions offered by the BPG Publications Committee, PCC Task Force in 2007-2009. Please feel free to add your own suggestions for improvement.
Update priority: Medium: Appears to be unfinished. Has been extensively and well-written about about elsewhere though.
- Add information about using Gortex or Tyvek packs.
- Add discussion of humidifying iron gall ink.
- The section on Humidity Chamber Techniques mentions the use of thymol / ortho—phenyl phenol / borax. These are no longer recommended for use in book and paper conservation.--Kkelly (talk) 10:09, 19 September 2017 (CDT)
- There is a brief mention of the use of Freon in sprayers. As Freon (CFCs) are no longer available, I recommend deleting this. I do not think this needs to be listed under "Historical Techniques and Materials" as it is a pretty brief mention in this chapter. The chapters on Backing Removal and Alkalization and Neutralization have text for this use though, if necessary.--Kkelly (talk) 13:17, 1 December 2017 (CST)
