They may be made of cardboard, wood, metal or plastic.

They should be stored in an environment which is not too humid and there is no extreme range of temperatures (air conditioning is not essential, but preferable). Short strips of microfilms may be put in pockets and filed in drawers. Longer ones are wound in spools, packed in individual cartons with paper identification and filed in drawers. Slides or transparencies require special filing cases. For small collection portable slide boxes are useful. 

Microfiche should always be kept in protective covers or envelopes. Top edges of microfiche should be visible for easy filing and identification. Microfiche should be filed in steel cabinets.

Large steel cabinets with shallow drawers are available for architectural or technical drawings. Sometimes these are rolled and kept in cylindrical containers.
