Title: Ink corrosion: Aqueous treatments and other procedures used for ink-inscribed paper. Consideration of implications including bio-deterioration: Survey Results
After receiving a great response from colleagues to an e-survey, we were able to host a 10-week long online seminar series (part I, II, III and IV) during 2017-2018. We had some interesting conversations and worthwhile discussions via email. On March 12th, 2018 we completed a 2-week long seminar (part IV) where more than 230 conservators and conservation scientists from 41 different countries presented and disseminated information on ink corrosion, stabilization treatments for mold infestations and disaster risk reduction. The intention of the study was to share and exchange knowledge with all the participants. Respondents from the following countries contributed to the debate: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Curaçao, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, England, El Salvador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, The Netherlands, Qatar, Uruguay, and the USA. These seminars were free of charge. A multitude of topics, inquires, images, reports, bibliographies and current publications were shared on a voluntary basis. A three-day course on disaster preparedness, prevention, response and recovery was held on March 26-28, 2018, organized by the Thematic Network MEEP (Metales en el Papel) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ten colleagues from Argentina, Mexico and Uruguay, who had responded to the iron gall ink treatments’ survey and participated in the seminars, also attended this ‘train-the-trainers’ course in Latin America.
