The Institute of Paper Conservation's Part and Parcel Conference
held in 2002 covered this subject in some detail.  Some of the
papers from the conference are now published in the latest issue,
volume 27, of the Paper Conservator.  Copies are available from the
IPC office at UKP12 for IPC members and UKP50 for non-members plus
postage and packing.
