Approved For Release 2000/08/214 RDP74-00005ROOd1 76 If., , 3 September 1971 25X1 A MEMORANDUM FOR: 25X1A 5X1 0 25X1A CIA Records Administration Officer Attachments: Ten Charts A thru E, I and 2 25X1A Two~ emos on correction of equipment Transmittal from C/A&RCto C/SSS 25X1 A 25X1A SUBJECT : Temperature Surveys of Agency Records Center, 25X1 A 1. Attached for your information are Charts of Surveys con- ducted by the Chief, CIA Archives and Records Center, at_ from 25X1A 1966 to 1971 which indicate humidity and temperature fluctations of more than 40 percentage points and 15 degrees (instead of the less than 5 normally allowable) inside It is im- 25X1A portant to note that this long standing problem pro-dates the current installation of movable shelving and will have to be solved after that installation is completed. Extreme temperature fluctations are detrimental to historic paper documents stored for long periods of time but are even more harmful for microfilm and magnetic tapes which we expect to receive in greater quantities in the near future. 2. Chief, Support Services Staff, DDS has requested that I forward these to you for discussion with the Real Estate and Construction Division engineers and to be held with other plans and surveys of the Records Center, such as the engineering study of humidity, 25X10 temperatures, and electricity which conducted prior to the development of specifications for the motorized shelving. 3. We plan to take up review of the equipment to stabilize the temperature and humidity ink upon completion of the current movable shelving project. In the meantime, p1e4,ae call me on #2468 if you or the engineers have any questions concerning these charts or the temper- ature and humidity problem.
