Re: Preserving newspaper clippings

 I think this falls into the "ounce of prevention' catagory.  Home
buffering of clippings and printed materials will probably extend the
life of the materials best if done when the items are still fairly new
and in good condition.  Once the paper starts to degrade such treatments
are still going to improve the appearance of the item a bit, but will
not reverse the degradation of the paper.  The previous posting on
proper handling of wet materials and the warning about inks and colored
materials was important.  It should also be noted that not all adhesives
respond to water, so you might want to do some spot testing before
commencing that large project on grandma's scrapbook.
