NAT’L ARCHIVE CONCERNED OVER INKJET PRINT

    National archive ‘concerned over inkjet prints’
    June,
    2007In news which may be of interest to users of Epson photo printers
    and HP A4 photo gloss laser paper, Libraries and National Archives
    Canada is concerned about their longevity.According to a report in the
    New York Times, the national archive is concerned that although its
    traditionally-printed collection will last over a considerable period
    of time, it is less sure about the longevity of its inkjet
    prints.”Library and Archives Canada collects and preserves Canada’s
    documentary heritage, and makes it accessible to all Canadians,” said
    the organisation.”As part of our mandate, we work closely with other
    archives and libraries to acquire and share these materials as widely
    as possible,” it added.In contrast with traditional photographic
    printing techniques, which keeps the dye below the surface of the
    print, modern inkjet paper is coated, thereby forcing the dye to stay
    on the paper’s surface and leaving it more vulnerable to the
    environment, according to the Enquirer.Libraries and Archives Canada
    was created in 2004, following the merger of the Public Archives of
    Canada and the National Library of Canada, which may interest users of
    HP A4 superior laser paper and Lexmark laser printers.
