The Miss. Univ. for Women had a very serious problem a few years ago with
mold and mildew.  They had to wash each book with a Lysol solution.  Pat
Matthes could give you more information.  She's not on e-mail yet but
her phone number is (601)329-7333.

No one has come up with any "good" method of removing mold & mildew. However,
I use lysol on a paper towel and wipe it off. It helps destroy the odor.
Then send the volume up where air circulates well and the sun can hit it and
leave for a day or two. If you have a large number of volumes that are moldy,
this is not very practical. Vacuum mold off with a wet/dry vacuum and increase
air circulation by putting fans on it. You need to find out what is wrong
with the air circulation and cure that or nothing will do any good.

      There is a conservation e-mail list. "consdist"
on the Internet, phone no. 415-725-1140.  (I'm new at this and may not have
given it to you right)!   <ed. note:  for more information about the
Conservation list, you can also try contacting listowner, Walter Henry.
