There are many standard options already available to you from
archival supply vendors. The Metal Edge Company has developed a line
of boxes and totes specifically for moving books to offsite storage
facilities. In their new catalog you will find a book tote/shelf
storage box used by major universities to move and store books at
offsite facilities, acid-free, heavy duty corrugated cartons
designed for the shipping and storage of book and paper collections,
one-piece adjustable corrugated book storage boxes which can quickly
create a "sized-to-fit" box as well as a line of individual book
boxes. They also have a helpful hint on "preparing for Remote
Storage". I will Fax: you some further information.
