1. Store small and medium scrapbooks upright on a shelf, fully on the shelf.

2. Use acid-free tissue paper between pages to prevent migration of acid between items in the scrapbook. But don't stress the scrapbook binding with too much material.

3. For larger scrapbooks, place them in a larger acid-free box. Boxes also prevent light damage.

4. Keep scrapbooks together to preserve original order.
