Conservation of Glass Plate Negatives

As a result of the Canterbury earthquakes of 2010 and 2011,
Canterbury Museum is faced with a number of broken glass plate
negatives.  We are currently researching the best solution for
conserving and storing these objects. Recent research has revealed
that there are a number of practices the world over.  While some
institutions choose to adhere broken pieces with various adhesives
and systems, others choose to store the pieces in sink mats without
adhering.  I would be interested in hearing from the conservation
community on current philosophies surrounding the preservation of
these objects.  Relevant conservators and those who are involved in
the preservation of these objects can respond by answering the ten
questions through following the link below.  Also please feel free
to contact me directly at cpike<-at->canterburymuseum<.>com
