Registration Now Open! ARCS Webinar September 30th at 2:00 p.m. EST: Boxes, Tubes & Pallets, Oh My! Choosing and Using Safe Materials for Collection Housing


The 2019 Institute for Museum and Library Services Heritage Health Information Survey documented that conditions in storage are critical to the health of collection items held in trust by institutions across the nation. 45% of institutions reported damage due to improper storage or enclosures in the past two years alone. With less than 5% of our collections on public view, improvement to storage is one of the most effective means for improving the care of our cultural heritage. 

This webinar will focus on choosing appropriate materials for storage that won’t inadvertently damage your collections over time. Making wise decisions about products and how they are used in rehousing projects will stretch your budget to get the most preservation bang for your buck. Rachael will introduce several resources to help with storage organization, mount design, and material choice and invite members from the ARCS community to collaboratively grow these resources.
