Archival containers and microenvironments

From: Ekaterina Starova <ban>
Date: Monday, July 29, 1996
I am very interested in a study of archival containers and
microenvironments including boxes, folders and polyester
encapsulation with a view to understanding the maximum benefit that
can be obtained from particular materials and designs.

The general environment at Library of Academy of sciences of Russia
(BAN) is not ideal for the long-term preservation of the book
collections.

My subject is "phased conservation" at BAN. The technology of mass
conservation using archival microclimate book containers is a new
concept that attempted as an integral part of the program of Phased
Conservation of BAN after fire 1988.

What do you know about research programs and studies of archival
containers and microenvironments of National Academy of Sciences
(NAS, USA) and National Archives and Records Administration NARA
(USA)? Thank you in advance,

Ekaterina Starova Head of the Group Conservation and Monitoring,
Conservation Department, Library of Academy of Sciences of Russia
