Good stuff - I still had an email alert for it from before getting my own copy.

I'd say very thick paper seems like the most likely option, but will still be very thin.

I really just want to build a safe setup that can be easily replicated so that I don't have to worry about it any more. But the more you read about conservation stuff, the more you learn there is no such thing.


It is called entropy. Everything over time goes from order to disorder, and all you can do is try to slow it down a bit. It IS frustrating, mind.

The temperature measurement is accurate, so I guess the RH measurement is not very far off. Additionally, I've replaced the CFL light bulbs for LED and installed 100% light-blocking curtains on that room. This will also prevent the room from getting too hot during the day. I think I'm good with regards to atmospheric conditions

The issue I have is that everything is piled up on my old wood-plastic composite laminate bookcase. This will change soon.

I was looking at the following bookcases:

Ash veneer: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/pro ... ery=591.553.30#/S59155330

Powder-coated steel: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products ... s-Series-Bookcases-345-x/

http://www.sears.com/sandusky-lee-san ... 2&blockNo=2&blockType=G2#

Powder coated steel is not as fashionable as wood and doesn't match anything in my house, but it probably requires less maintenance as there's no need to worry for placing the acid-free paper between the wood and the books?


I think the problem with RH sensors is just that they are intrinsically less reliable than temperature sensors. I don't think you can infer that one sensor is accurate on a device because the other is. I would personally trust an uncalibrated sensor to within 5-10%, based on my own observations. Truthfully, you are simply going to know if your environment is dry enough or too damp, anyway. If it feels nice and dry, it is. If the air feels moist, you have a problem. We aren't talking about preserving the dead sea scrolls here! :)
