      Hi everyone –

      After having my archive purchase expensive powder-coated steel (considered ideal by conservators), I’ve heard that chrome-plated modular wire shelving (Uline, Metro, etc) will do.

      Has anyone used it to house their manuscript archives, or heard about others using it? How is it holding up? I am housing my collection in acid-free boxes and folders , so the documents would not directly interact with the chrome plating. At the moment, the collection resides in a consistent 68 degree, 30% humidity environment.

      Thank you for your help with this!
