Great idea, Tara.   It just hits the spot because keeping paper documents intact isn’t just about finding anywhere to store your stuff.

let start with  the  ‘ten agents of
deterioration’ (http://www.cci-icc.gc.ca/crc/articles/mcpm/index-eng.aspx)
physical forces
thieves and vandals
dissociation
fire
water
pests
pollutants
light, ultraviolet and infrared
incorrect temperature
incorrect relative humidity

How do I get my historical documents safely preservedif I don’t have any money.  Because, lets say I am still part of the avant-garde and still underground?.  How do I get my good work preserved before I leave the field of danger?  Good question eh?
