Not sure where to post this question, so I picked here - most threads and readers.

Anyway, how do people store their uncut 120/220 roll transparencies? Do you just roll them up and store them in a shoebox? Or do people have elaborate hanging mounts and the like? Are there 'special' storage devices out there for these rolls? Do they have to be in a dark cool place?

What about indexing and filing. What methods do people use to file them, index them and retrieve them?

Right now, I keep them loosely rolled up in their sleeves in a cardboard box. I use a Post-It stick on plastic tab (various colours) to write my ID markings for indexing and quick retrieval - well medium quick retrieval.

I usually keep them in their sleeves and rolled up in the hard cardboard cylinders with the caps. Although those cylinders take a little too much space as your rolls build up, and so I've had to cut them every 3rd slide and put them in 8x10 sleves that fit in 3 ring binders.

I store them in archival negative sleeves and make a note of the date, location etc on the sleeve with a black marker pen. The sleeve is kept in a negative storage folder which is also marked with dates etc. I also store my black and white negatives in the same way and can usually find whatever I'm looking for quite quickly.
