I've been off the list for a while, so forgive me if the question has been asked before. We are contemplating a funding request for offsite storage for audio and video recordings and I need to find some figures on the costs of this storage. Could anyone point me to sources, or if you can offer figures from your own experience that would help. I am assuming that these are substantially different from the costs of print storage because of the different climate-control requirements, not to mention differences in the density and weight of the material. Retrieval costs I expect will differ as well, although perhaps not as much.

In any event, thanks in advance for any help.
