Re: [padg] Cleaning Concrete Dust from Books & Shelves
responded to exactly that problem when Moffitt was renovated a decade
ago. Lets see how others respond and then you might want to check in with
Gill on our experience if you haven't already. B.

Our library just went through a construction project that led to concrete
dust covering a fair amount of our shelves and rare books (the covers and
textblock edges). Sadly, the visqueen barriers and other
precautionary measures were not sufficient for the job. We are now
in a position where we need to clean the concrete dust from our shelves
and rare books.
Do any of you have experience cleaning concrete dust from books?
What would work best and most efficiently? Please e-mail me
directly, if possible. Your guidance is greatly
