What can you do with your documents instead?
- Purchase archival supplies from a company such as Gaylord Brothers. These plastic clips work the same as metal, but will not harm your documents. Folders are also an easy way to keep documents organized.
- Put documents in archival safe page protectors, such as those recommended by Dear Myrtle in her organizational checklist.
- Read Sally J.'s Practical Archivist blog for information on proper archival practices of photographs.
