The Archival Chamber of Horrors:Some of this problems that are common

A num­ber of the problems that are com­mon small:

1) Paper clips, staples, and paper pins

Paper clip inden­ta­tion

Most of the paper mate­rial dona­ted to us is held as well as paper videos, staples, and, if it is older, paper pins1 or brads. Paper fas­te­ners are fair­ly innocuous–they lea­ve inden­ta­tions or tiny holes in the cor­ners associa­ted with the pages, but that is about this. Things get much even wor­se, though, in the event that docu­ments have wet. The steel fas­te­ners rust and “melt” in to the paper, lea­ving resi­due and making the fas­te­ner almost imprac­tical to remo­ve wit­hout tea­ring away an ele­ment of the page. (For­tu­na­te­ly, we now haven’t seen anyw­he­re near this much and I also couldn’t show up with a good example of it to pic­tu­re.)

2) Non-stan­dard sto­ra­ge con­tai­ners

Suitca­ses, footwear bins, cof­fee cans …

Some sto­ra­ge that is makes­hift are more serious than others. From the up part, they do pro­tect things from sun­light, dirt, and basic wear and tear. Regar­ding the problem, they could may­be may­be not allow atmosp­he­re blood supply, as well as could be manu­fac­tu­red from mate­rials that play a role in the process of get­ting older. Recent­ly I had to dis­po­se off a vin­ta­ge suitca­se that I owned actual­ly since it had synt­he­tic ele­ments in the insi­de that decayed with age and rui­ned some tex­ti­le that I expe­rienced kept in. Live and learn, right? The suitca­se into the pho­to is bat­te­red and rat­her dir­ty, but it did assist pro­tect the things in.

Card­board and paper con­tai­ners can be proble­ma­tic, too, but I’ll tar­get that when you look at the Newsprint and Cheap Paper part below.

3) Ver­min

Insects are type of self-expla­na­to­ry. And also being cree­py, they con­su­me paper and glue, and then lea­ve eggs and drop­pings behind. Ugh. The bug in this ima­ge ended up being ele­ment of a huge and inten­se­ly anno­ying cric­ket int­rusion that people suf­fe­red as a result of this summer’s heat wave, but we wor­ry more info on roac­hes and sil­ver­fish.
