There is a lot of material, both old and new that had been "published internally" at IPST (formerly Institute of Paper Chemistry).  It is available on the Georgia Tech website, http://smartech.gatech.edu/handle/1853/124 .  The articles can be searched by author, title, or "words".  It would take a little time (probably less than 2 hours), but you can scan through all the article titles (A to black and white stripes) to see what might interest you.  All are downloadable (PDFs).  You can also sign up to be notified whenever a new article is posted.  It seems like a fine source for the work done at the old Institute of Paper Chemistry and now IPST.  Submitted by Chuck Green.
