"care and feeding" of glove boxes

Submitted by Barbara Reisner / James Madison University on Mon, 09/29/2008 - 17:08
I'm on sabbatical leave this year and have discovered that I'm the person in the group who knows the most about glove boxes.  I've picked up a few things over the years, but I'm not sure what is important and what's irrelevant.  (I'm a solid state chemist and don't have that much use for glove boxes on a regular basis.)  Can anyone recommend some resources on "care and feeding" of a glove box?  Better yet, do you have any suggestions for general rules of use and maintenance for a glove box?
