    Reminds me of a poll I did sometime back... I use those Kaiser negative/unmounted slide sleeves and another brand of slide sleeves for mounted slides. Best is to invest in archival quality sleeves, but I don't think my slide sleeves are archival, so is the file that holds them....

    The best method is to use long term conservation methods, that is a controlled environment (temperature, humidity) with the slides and negs in complete darkness.

    My primary film archive is housed in a series of specially made cabinets. The slides are are stored in polypropelyne boxes which are then stored in solid timber draws. Negatives are stored in polypropelyne sleves in wooden draws. The archive is located in an environmentally controlled secure storage unit.

    Essential tools:
    Knowledge, money, time, effort, reasearch.

    There's hundreds of brands, some include, Hama, Kaiser, Albox.

    Expense is a relative thing!

    Dry cabinet storage can damage film emulsions in the long term. A web search or a trip to a library are recommended.
