Hello ARSCLIB Listserv,
My name is Alexander "Lexi" Echelman, Archives and Collections Coordinator at Stepping Stones - Historic Home of Bill and Lois Wilson in Westchester County, NY. We are the historic home for the cofounders of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon Family Groups. In our collection, we have reel-to-reel wire audio recordings and audio cassettes as well. My questions are as follows?
What are the ideal storage and preservation procedures needed for these types of collections?
Should I wrap them in plastic if putting them into cold storage?
Thank you for your help. I look forward to your responses.
