Avoid Light; Avoid Food & Drink
Avoid direct light sources. Both artificial and natural light can cause irreversible fading to photographs, papers, inks and book bindings. Store important books and records out of bright lighting and sunlight.
Avoid food and drink
Keep food and drink away from important records.
Debris or spills can attract vermin and can cause irreparable damage to papers, photos and books.
Do not handle important records if you are eating or drinking. Wash your hands before touching the records.
