With the support of the National Cultural Fund of Hungary, the Eötvös Loránd University Library and Archives acquired modern storage bags for the photographs of the university history collection.
Ensuring adequate stock protection is the basis for long-term conservation. The transparent iSafe polypropylene pouches allow us to protect our photos not only from dust, but also from fingerprints during research and processing. The FILLA semi-transparent paper bags purchased for larger photos provide storage that meets stock protection considerations and is economical at the same time.
During the revision of the collection unit in 2021, more than 3 000 pieces of paper photographs were packaged, moreover negatives and postcards will soon be placed in the remaining bags.
A significant part of the historical photo collection is already available online:
