      Hi everyone, I am hoping to get some advice about allowing archival documents to be in museum exhibits for longer than 3-6 month (consecutive) periods. My museum is using LED lights for the exhibit areas, and there isn’t any direct UV light coming in from any windows. The NEDCC states that LEDs do not emit UV or IR radiation, so I am wondering if I still have to worry about cumulative exposure from light. I don’t think these pieces will ever rotate if I agree to let them be part of the exhibit, so I am advocating that we place scans of them out there instead.

      Am I wrong to be worried about this?
