In this video, Marilen Pool, Project Conservator at the Arizona State Museum, discusses why polystyerene foam and hard plastic – both commonly available products – are not the best materials to use in a museum collection. This tutorial supplements the session “Materials for Soft Storage and Packing” given at the 2016 ATALM annual conference held in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 10-13, 2016.
