Some archival documents deteriorate due to accelerated intrinsic decay, which is degradation that is inherent in the material itself, such as acidification, ink corrosion or copper corrosion, even if they are not being accessed. The Archives Damage Atlas is a tool that can be used to recognise and classify damage to archival documents in order to establish the level of accessibility. The atlas should also provide more insight into the types and causes of damage.
The Archives Damage Atlas is a translation and supplemented edition of the Schadeatlas archieven published by Metamorfoze in 2007 and is made possible by the Dutch Common Cultural Heritage programme
