Open depot

First the drawings and correspondence are arranged and documented. Then the items are placed in acid-free paper and, depending on their size, stored in archive boxes, drawing portfolios or drawing boxes (for rolls). Each item is given an inventory code that is recorded in the archive inventory. Models are photographed and measured and their condition described. These details are entered into a special database. The database enables the public to access and inspect all objects, documents and drawings in the exhibition.
