A storage device for retaining one or more sheet items for access by a user. The storage device has a storage device cover including front and rear panels, and contains one or more first binding members which receive apertures formed in the sheet items to register the sheet items relative to the cover. One or more second binding members are hingedly connected to the storage device cover and preferably operate independently of the front and rear panels of the cover to engage the first binding members. Retained sheet items are able to be moved from a first position generally parallel with the rear panel to a second position generally parallel with the front panel. Alternatively, the storage device includes a single panel that carries the first and second binding members.
