      Have any of you had the experience of starting a job in a museum & archive (no collection management policy, etc) that already has archival items like pamphlets, newspapers as well as old/rare books on display? I’d like to rotate these items with similar ones, seeing that 3 months is usually the max for cumulative light exposure, etc. They’ve never been rotated between 1980’s-present.

      Do any of you assign a museum collection accession # to these archival items while they serve as museum exhibit items, or do you have another tracking method, like separation sheets in the archival box and a note in the finding aid?

      Thank you!
