Regarding information about preservation issues and remote storage
facilities, the New York State Education Department put out an
Environmental Controls Resource Packet a couple of years ago.  It
includes, among other things, "Conservation Environment Guidelines for
Libraries and Archives" by William P. Lull and "Hold Everything! A
Storage and Housing Information Sourcebook for Libraries and Archives",
compiled by Metro, the New York Metropolitan Reference and Research
Agency.  Although some of the information is N.Y. State-specific, there
