CCAHA logoThis document includes a list of materials that are acceptable for the storage of collections.

The list is not exhaustive, but is a good starting point for selecting storage materials.

Note that many of these materials may be marketed under different product or trade names.

When choosing products, if the material-type is unclear or if you have questions about its suitability for use with your collections, contact the manufacturer and/or a conservator.

CCAHA’s Preservation Resources provide information on a range of preservation topics from assessing priorities, to preparing collections for moving, to emergency preparedness.  This short fact sheet is targeted to staff in collecting institutions or others who are involved in collections care activities.
