Crate, Crate Preparation, and Packing Materials Questionnaire from the Image Permanence Institute
As part of the first phase of a three-year research project, Cost-Efficient and Environmentally Responsible Preservation Methods for Preparing Paper-Based Objects for Transit and Display, the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) is conducting a crate, crate preparation, and packing materials questionnaire. The results of this questionnaire will inform a current inventory of common crate construction and packing materials used to prepare paper-based collection objects for transit. These materials will be evaluated for cost and environmental waste comparisons, and inform laboratory experiments of crates and crate packing configurations.
The questionnaire should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and addresses the following topics specific to traveling paper-based collection objects:
1) Crate construction and packing materials, and preparation practices,
2) Exploring topics related to environmental waste associated with crates and packing materials.
