    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.
