yesterday granting the Michigan Em-

Governor William Milliken. The bill is
the legislative implementation of the
new collective bargaining rights gran-
ted state troopers with the passage of
Proposal G last November..
Proposition G is a constitutional
amendment giving state troopers the
same bargaining rights as local police.
The troopers add that the statute
removes them from civil service

books fall apart after only 25 years of
use, Craven said.
"WE ARE waiting for some kind of
technical advance that will allow us to
de-acidify a great quantity of books,"
Craven said. "Until it comes along,
there are some things you can do with
storage such as temperature and
humidity control."
Preserving' processes have been
developed, but sipposedly they are too
expensive, library officials said.
"These processes are prohibitive
when you become involved with tle
number of books such as we have at the
University," Craven said.
ONE OF the major causes of book
deterioration is exposure to humidity,
dust and air pollution. To combat these
forces, University library personnel
are tryinlg to create favorable and con-
sistent environments.
"Some divisional libraries need new
buildings," said library official Robprt
Starring. "Some old buildings don't
have air handling systems and the
collection suffers more when you have
fluctuation in temperlature."
"We're fortunate that Ann Arbor is
not highly industrialized," he added.
"We don't have the problems (with
pollution) that some urban research
libraries have."
HOWEVER, according to Craven, a
Major threat to books are people.

books published on acidic paper, the
publishing industry has yet to adapt

-said. "Commercial publishers are still

he said. ."t would lie a. great boon, but
