How Do Archives Move (Article)
Title: How Do Archives Move
Author: Melissa VanOtterloo
Abstract: In 2011 the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) received an NEH Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections grant to move archival collections into MNA's new LEED Platinum certified Easton Collection Center (ECC). This grant allowed MNA to purchase and install compact shelving in the ECC for MNA Archives. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an important consideration during the move since old storage has documented evidence of infestation. Archives were either frozen (paper records) or isolated and monitored (formats, such as negatives, that could not be frozen). The procedures followed are outlined in this article.
