Leaflet - Preservation Hints for Time Capsule Items

Archivally Speaking Series

How do you preserve the items inside of your time capsule? This leaflet explains preservation hints for you to use when placing your time capsule items inside the time capsule.There are paper things (letters, newsprint, legal documents, photocopies), books (printed and manuscript), photographs (color, black-and-white, slides, negatives, digital), films and tapes (videotapes, 16mm film, 35mm film, DVD and CD), software related computer files (your website), special artifacts and textiles (memorabilia such as a baseball, a T-Shirt, a stole, a quilt patch, a baseball cap).With these items in mind, we've developed a few common sense guidelines on care & preservation of those items before & after placing in the capsule. Leaflet Preservation Hints for Time Capsule Items explains what to do for your items before placing them inside of your time capsule to keep them in top condition till the time they are viewed again.
