Letters, Diaries, Books and Documents.
Photographs and Photographic Film.
Given the number of chemicals involved, it should not be surprising that this media is not completely stable. Photos, slides, and negatives fade over time.
Scrapbooks and Memory Books.
Many people assemble ‘memory books’ to help them record the history of themselves or their family. Pictures, newspaper clippings, certificates, letters, tickets, souvenir programs, and a host of other memorabilia find their way into these books. Most commercial albums or scrapbooks are made of inexpensive paper and thus have extremely high levels of acid, which will shorten the life of those items. The mix of material placed in a scrapbook can also cause problems. Photographs, highly acidic newspaper clippings, and other items often create peculiar chemical mixes that can cause unpredictable results.
Video and Audio Tapes.
Oxford Duplication Preservation Checklist
Always store your media in a cool, dry place.
Do not store in uninsulated attics or damp basements.
Always keep media away from bright light.
Store media opened, rather than folded, and flat.
Separate deteriorating media from other items by using acid free paper or envelope.
