Although I am not currently a member of NAGARA (National Association of
Government Archives and Records Administrators) I was in the past and seem
to remember they had a very thorough guide for setting up and operating a
records room in their member resources. Since it looks like you work at a
public agency I thought I would mention it, in case you can get access to
this or a similar library.

I last looked at these guides years ago, but remember finding a good
overview on everything from types of boxes and shelving to acceptable
temperature and humidity, plus how to decide on access and checkout systems.

It looks like only NAGARA members can view the full resources list ... I was
just thinking of renewing my membership, though. Maybe a good time!
