Storage environments determine long-term preservation. We recommend industrial, steel coated shelves that have a powder coating to maintain records, which was established by the National Archives. These materials allow for natural air circulation. We prefer the rolling shelves to maneuver in case of a natural disaster. The facility should have a temperature and humidity monitor to maintain a standardized environment. We recommend keeping your storage and gallery facilities at 70 degrees Fahrenheit at a 45 percent humidity level. Ultraviolet light levels should also be noted. When working on records, you can refer to the National Archive’s recommendations for Storing Family Papers and Photographs.
