As the world continues  towards a future increasingly marked by electronic records, the demise of paper as archives is constantly predicted. This is simply not the case. The use of paper continues in new and innovative ways; for instance its digitization and mounting on the Internet to provide remote users access to records. Therefore, since paper is still relevent as a record keeping material, the intent of this exhibit is to provide an explanation of its physical characteristics, the main agents of its deterioration, and proper methods for its conservation.
