28.   PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION LAB

            The records received are at first fumigated in the fumigation chamber and the fragile and brittle records are conserved by laminating them with chiffon or Tissue paper.  De-pesticization and de-acidification techniques are in vogue.   

            The Mending and Binding section has staff experienced in repairs of delicate and worn-out documents, manuscripts and printed books.  The brittle documents which have broken into pieces are restored by treating them with chiffon or tissue paper.

            The worm-eaten documents are repaired by removing the infested margins and by in-laying them in suitable mounts.
