Re: Collection Storage floors

Melody Marshall

Thanks for the information, I will check out your suggestions.

We had assessment done last summer by two collection care conservators. They recommended moving most of our collections into the former museum building because of the temperature, no windows and away from our previous collection storage where Paleo department dust, kitchen facilities and exhibit storage and high traffic,no security were the deciding factors. But the main room in the new “storage area” has carpet and they recommended that we remove it for moisture, dust and dirt and insect control. Thanks again.
