Epigraphic squeezes

From: Jill Iacchei <ji49<-at->

Cornell University Library has recently acquired a collection of
roughly 200 epigraphic paper "squeezes," layered paper impressions
of Hittite inscriptions from monuments.  These items are on their
way to the conservation lab for treatment and housing.  They have
been previously stored stacked in cardboard boxes and overall, they
are heavily soiled. We are looking for recommendations from other
institutions with similar collections regarding treatment (cleaning
and mending) and the most beneficial way to store these items
considering space and concern for their raised impressions.
