The name of the newsletter is derived from an insect. Silverfish (Lepisma saccharina) have inhabited the earth for over 300 million years. They are pests of paper products and prefer food containing starch such as the glue found in book bindings and photographs. Silverfish are found throughout the United States and the world. They are the traditional nemesis of librarians.
