Archival Quality


Every so often, archives need to reassess how their collections are stored. Particularly, what is in direct contact with the manuscript, photograph, or work on paper, etc.? Der Deutsche Correspondent is receiving a new protective cover: Tyvek. Tyvek is an archival material that is resistant to mold, mildew, water, and dust particles. It is tear-resistant and non-abrasive.

What you see in the photograph (taken by an iPhone so it is not the best quality) is a wrapped volume of the newspaper in the upper left and a un-wrapped volume next to it.
