I'm looking for information about the roller press method of making
cellulose acetate impressions of fish scales.  Could any curators or
collection managers who have this type of collection material contact me
offline.  In particular, I would like some emperical data on how long
these preparations might last, and what can be done if deterioration
is a problem.
