By Thi-Phuong Nguyen, Stéphane Bouvet and Myriam EvenoErasers are mainly used in maintaining and dusting soiled documents. They are in use throughout BnF’s workshops, and are of an extremely wide variety of compositions, colors, and textures. Over and above the requirements of a particular treatment and in spite of all the care that may be taken when using erasers, particles can remain locked inside paper pores.
