Inks, paper for archival prints of digital images?

    The US National Park Service has a publication outlining their
    standards for submitting photos of properties nominated to the
    National Register of Historic Places which includes a section for
    digital images. The "non-comprehensive list" of acceptable ink and
    paper combinations hasn't changed since I first looked at it a few
    years ago.

    Can somebody direct me to other up-to-date sources of this kind of
    information?

    I agree that the site you linked to needs updating.
    Also, now that there are several makers of ink/media that have ~ 200
    year display life and longer dark storage, the insistence on archiving
    only B&W prints seems a bit extreme.
