      Hi, We received a collection of mostly typescript and some manuscript documents that were stored in a house full of moth balls. The smell is strong enough, which indicates to me that the chemical compounds have absorbed into the paper, that one of options I am looking at is to just photocopy the collection onto Bond paper and dispose of the affected paper thus minimizing risk to staff and the collections. I am looking to get feedback on whether or not this is the right way to go and what alternatives there are to consider.
