Reply To: Matchbooks in Collections – Heads or no heads?

Renee,

I don’t think I’ve seen a discussion on this site that answers your question. I think Pat is referring to museum/archive collection sites in general. (Pat, please correct me if I’m wrong.)

Nora Lockshin, of the Smithsonian Institution Archives, wrote a pretty interesting blog post on this topic as well.

What I really like about her post is that she has many, many photos of how she has mounted the matchbooks within archival folders to prevent further damage.
