Some good resources if you're just learning how to deal with archival film are the Film Preservation Guide, which is available as a pdf download, and the AMIA list.
In general, unless there isn't much control over humidity or you're dealing with a relatively small number of films, I'd go with cool/ dry storage (the Film Preservation Guide lists optimal conditions) in vented cans over molecular sieves to prevent further deterioration.
