In Seven Stories we have conservator, archivist and collection
officer. We use standard size of the boxes (foolscap-ish for
archives and two different sizes for artwork storage) what makes it
easier to order. It's usually conservator's responsibility but also
archivist or collection officer might place an order while
conservator is away, especially when new large acquisition is coming
in so can be transported already in appropriate boxes. Hope it
