All materials used in the storage and display of artefacts at the British Museum now have to pass one or more tests before they can be used. His work has focused on preventive conservation and materials issues and he has published extensively in this area. Lorna Lee worked as a conservation Scientist at the British Museum between 1985 and 1997. This has made a dramatic impact on the stability of the collection. This Occasional Paper was compiled in response to numerous enquiries received by the British Museum from a wide range of professionals: designers, architects, conservators, collectors, curators, and showcase manufacturers, and indeed anyone involved in the task of creating a safe environment for precious objects.

Adhesive tape (sticky tape, masking tape, et. will contract and eventually separate from the paper it is used on, leaving a sticky yellow stain that is usually difficult or impossible to remove.

There is little point in conserving an object if the storage conditions to which it is to be returned contributed to its deterioration. This book presents the full range of tests, for materials used in constructing storage and display areas, which are used at the British museum and describes standard procedures for carrying them out. It is a valuable source of information for curators, conservators and designers and will enable those with access to relatively basic equipment to carry out their own tests.
