Paper industry has been developed up-to worldwide level and many technical
developments have been contributed in the past. However, it is urgent for the
industry to preserve and collect them for further development. By this reason,
JAPAN TAPPI takes an action toward the following 2 purposes.
1. To collect and preserve materials related to paper industry technical progress,
and aim at its systematization.
2. To send out signals of preserved and collected materials as information, and
contribute to the next generation technical progress.
Target should be technical record, products sample, and facilities between 1945
and 1990. In 2002 and 2003, survey sheets were sent to many companies in the
industry. In the result we made database of actual storage condition and so on.
After that, based on the result, we are scheduled to proceed preservation of
important technical heritages, significant technical systematization, and sending
out signals as information
