Re: artifact protection/packing during facility upgrade


We have a few larger mounts that we just put into temporary storage space, so that a conservation intern can work on cleaning them. We are having Maintenance build us dollies so that they can be moved without being handled. They won’t be fancy, just plywood with casters, plus a couple stabilizers that will go across the top of the base with foam padding. We have also had Maintenance build us a simple frame for a wall-mounted specimen (an owl on a wall bracket) – the frame has four legs and a platform with space for the bracket to sit in, then some stabilizers to hold it in place.
