This webinar will offer tips for determining appropriate storage areas and methods for a range of decorative and utilitarian objects and artifacts with guidelines for proper packing and/or support for these objects in storage. Examples of the kinds of objects covered include ceramics, metal and wooden tools, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, and furniture. While some inexpensive materials are unsuitable for long term storage, even with budgetary constraints, institutions can often employ creative solutions to protect collections. Strategies for coping with less than ideal storage areas will also be addressed.
