Charcoal drawings and pastels

From: Esther L. Koppel <elm2294>

I am working with a collection of student artwork. The collection is
archival in nature, but also used for examples and instruction in
classes on a regular basis. Most of the works were done in charcoal,
pastel or conte and were never "fixed". Any suggestions on ways to
house works that tend to shed their powdery media but will be used
regularly? Is there a way to "fix" the media without risking damage
to the items?
