There were some archival processioning discussions on the APG-List not
too long ago <http://archiver.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/search?path=APG>.
Some of the people offering detailed advice were: Daniela Moneta and
Valerie A. Metzler. I think the subject title was archival collection.
The discussion also included advice on preserving photographs and handy
tips for scanning.
