At the Ohio State University Cartoon Research Library, we store
broadsheets in heavy folders in boxes.  Fragile pages are
interleaved with bond paper larger than the broadsheets, so that the
newsprint is not handled directly.  Especially fragile pages are
stored in clear polyester folders, sealed only along one long side.
