      Happy Friday everyone!

      I recieved the following preservation question from a researcher. Does anyone have any suggestions that I may provide her? Thanks! Garret

      Question: We are in the process of moving our permanent paper records from plastic sleeve storage to archival file folders. Some of the documents (looks like 1997 to 2006) were printed on an ink that is raised on the paper, and this ink is very tacky. Many of the documents have stuck together. Although we have been successfully separating the pages, we are having trouble finding a way to store these documents so that they don’t stick going forward. We have tried using the buffered interleaving paper and placing the shiny side towards the ink; but have found that the ink is sticking to the interleaving paper as well.
