UNESCO Collections Storage

Ran across a UNESCO survey and it reminded me that I wanted to post a link to one of their documents that was informative while making me laugh. It is titled Handling of Collections in Storage and it is a great little document. The illustrations are very basic and look like cartoons. I'm not sure if this is because they were going for a very basic approach (an x over what not to do, illustrations of museum staff thinking-complete with thought bubbles) or if it was because they've had problems with more complicated illustrations/documents. Regardless, the illustrations and the bullet points are informative about handling artifact collections.
