I second what Mauro has said.

Here are some resources for cold storage for photographic materials:

For a museum where I volunteered during my studies, I used Mark McCormick-Goodhart’s 2003 report on using the CMI method as an easy and budget-friendly solution for a small collection that is consulted infrquently. It requires regular monitoring, but it seems like a viable solution if executed correctly.
