Preserving Cultural Collections through Sustainable Practices

Improved storage and preservation through the installation of compact shelving and the construction of object storage mounts and boxes for collections of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian items held by the Sealaska Heritage Institute.

The Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) is dedicated to preserving and making a diverse collection of significant humanities holdings available for present and future generations. Prior to a facility relocation, this project will first purchase and install preservation-quality compact shelving structures that will be integrated with systems to manage relative humidity, temperature, light, and pollutants in its collection storage space. Then SHI will oversee the construction of preservation quality object storage mounts and boxing that protect objects during a facility relocation and in the long term, amid the objective of carrying out the project through sustainable and environmentally responsive best practices.
