Insulated modular storage without environmental controls

From: Paula Sagerman <redfish>

The Brattleboro Historical Society (VT, USA) would like to use part
of an old barn for storage of archival materials if there is a way
to protect the materials from deterioration.  We have paper,
textiles, furniture, etc.  In order to protect the building
envelope, we are considering building a "box within a box" using
insulated, sheet-rocked walls and ceiling.  However, there will not
be any climate control. Are any materials safe in this situation?
Any suggestions?
