Any brief article, such as this, on the preservation and care of records must be incomplete. Volumes have been and are being written on the subject, and the end is not yet. Scientists, engineers, librarians, and even a division of the League of Nations have devoted much time to a study of the subject. The United States Bureau of Standards in cooperation with the Carnegie Foundation and the National Research Council is continually carrying on research in the preservation of records. This research includes not only the preservation after records are made and distributed but includes research on the ingredients and processes of manufacture of materials out of which records are made, namely, paper, ink, paste, and bindings. One who cares to go into a more detailed and technical study of the subject will find abundant material as a beginning in the bibliography at the end of this article.
