just been published by the International Federation of Film Archives and
is available in the USA from: Garland Publishing, Inc., New York City.
Title: A HANDBOOK FOR FILM ARCHIVES (1991), edited by Eileen Bowser and
John Kuiper. I understand it sells for ca. $30. Another useful volume
should still be available from Eastman Kodak: THE BOOK OF FILM CARE, Kodak
