Preservation Enclosures

Do you work at a library or are you a collector of materials that are fragile or rare, and want a better set of options for housing them safely?

How to judge the best materials to use for preservation enclosures.
How to create eight (6) enclosures for a variety of materials.
Skills to make and adapt the structures for any book or collection.
