Many publishers provide you with newspaper reviews and articles, and these are valuable historical records. Unfortunately, if they are newspaper originals, these will damage adjacent material. Newspapers leave a brown imprint on adjacent material, change colour and become brittle with age. Photocopying these is the best solution. Avoid photocopying onto A3 size paper, as this creates storage problems when related material is generally in A4 size. When photocopying, you may reduce the original, but avoid reducing to microscopic print. Generally, the paper used in photocopy machines is safe to use and will last.
Storing your collection
A final word
