Subject: Storage


From: Barbara Appelbaum <aandh>

In response to Claire Dean's query about study/storage, we helped
design a project in a New York State museum.  The public side was a
conference room and classroom around which on three sides was a
secure corridor.  A U-shaped arrangement of storage cabinets had
doors on the secure side and glass backs which formed the walls of
the viewing room. The cabinets were high quality, and there were
many discussion about lighting, shelf materials, etc., so that the
results would be aesthetically appealing and conservation grade.  It
helps a great deal that curatorial access is not from the side that
visitors have access to.  This was not a very large collection; this
kind of design would be harder to do with a huge number of objects.
