Some damage is irreversible

If the importance of the object is very high, a professional conservator should only handle it. The American Institute for Conservation maintains a free referral list of conservators who will be able to provide guidance. Based on a complete description a computer-generated list will be compiled and grouped geographically, by specialization, and type of service for you.

There are many different types of items one might wish to preserve/conserve and protect, all with specific needs for best storage - sometimes the best environment for certain items are even at odds with each other. There are so many things a person might wish to keep for future generations; a specific list would be quite lengthy. Some of the general items that were considered when compiling this information on general storage/preserving include:

  • Printed/flat paper materials (documents, photos, drawings, maps, etc.)

  • Recordings (picture and/or sound)

  • Heirlooms (clothing, jewelry, furniture, glass, utensils, knickknacks, linens, etc.)

Note: Please realize that the information contained within these pages are suggestions. They are not the "last word", nor are they mandates. If you could fulfill all the suggestions, it would be a best case scenario. However, if you do not follow the ideas, all will not be lost. Even being able to improve storage by trying one new idea on these pages would help.
