Storing your collection

So what can you do that’s simple and reasonable in cost? Start with storage. Choose a storage place with an even temperature, low light, no dampness and no pests. This place should be easily accessible while allowing you to get on with your work. Some options for storing material include suspension files in a filing cabinet, an envelope or a box. When choosing, consider the size and shape of your materials and your storage capacity.
