Any one who can help me, it's greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for a backup source for readability and usabilty of fonts in
paper documentation. Our paper manuals have been using Helvetica throughout.
We have a new head of the department now and I want to propose that we
continue to use Helvetica for section heads, call outs, and titles, but go
to a serif font for the body copy. I know every class I've ever taken has
stressed that a serif font makes reading easier, but I can't find the
support I'm going to need for the departmental meeting. Our old boss thought
serif fonts looked too informal. He didn't need any documentation to make
this decision, but I'll need some to justify making a change.
