Phase boxes and encapsulation

June 12, 2006

I was lucky enough to attend a RRLC College Archvists Roundtable meeting last Thursday. We met at the University of Rochester Rush-Rhees Library where Andrea Reithmayr, Rare Book Conservator, showed us their techniques for making phase boxes with a tab and slot closures. She also demonstrated encapsulation with the ultrasonic welder. We left with handouts with instructions and suggestions.

Thank you Andrea!!! I came back loaded with information on how to improve and streamline our box making. I’m looking for the materials to make a folding board, which will make everything much easier for my student workers.

As always, there is much to be learned by getting together with other archivists. 🙂

    Do you have printed instructions for the phase boxes with the tab and slot closures?
