Fax Collection (thermal paper preservation)

  • 1.  Fax Collection (thermal paper preservation)

    Hi all,
    Reaching out on behalf of a colleague, Christa Shusko (christa.shusko@ub.gu.se), at KvinnSam (women's and gender research library at Gothenburg University in Swededn) She is working on a project dealing with faxes from the 1980s and 1990s in one of their manuscript collections (Birgitta Stenberg, a cool Swedish author). Thus far, she's inventoried over 8000 pages. She has been tasked with their preservation and looking for possible research or other approaches to dealing with massive quantities of thermal paper records in archives.
    Has anyone dealt with something similar? Feel free to reach out to me or Christa directly if you can share any insight!
    Many thanks,

    Jeremy
