How NARA creates custom storage boxes
This is a fascinating short video report of how NARA makes custom archival boxes for odd sized items in its vast warehouses.
I like how despite the high tech measuring systems, it still takes a human to lay more than one box onto one of those large sheets before the items are custom cut. It just goes to show there is no substitute for human ingenuity.
Happy family tree climbing!
