Insects enjoy nourishing themselves with books, manuscripts, photographs and other archive materials, sometimes with losses to your collections as a consequence. David Pinniger, a British entomologist, wrote a new and free online brochure for the Preservation Advisory Centre of The British Library. It is titled ‘Managing pests in paper-based collections’. It is intended as a tool of aid in identifying, preventing and suppressing insects that affect your paper collections.
The Preservation Advisory Centre is the centre of expertise in preservation and management of library – and archive collections of the British Library. You can find more brochures, video’s, manuals etc. on their website.
