 Hi, I am new to the microfilm game, and have been asked to find out
procedures for restoring / cleaning / preventing further decay in
microfilms.  Some of our films (some of which are in plastic cases) have
that lovely vinegar smell starting up.  So, my questions are: 1. If we
transfer those rolls in plastic cases to the acid-free type, will that
prevent further decay; and 2. Is there a way to clean or restore the
film, other than reproducing it? Any help on this issue would be greatly
appreciated.  [My apologies if this issue has been covered
before] Rachel RogersLibrarian InternDiana M. Priestly Law
