Re: [ARSCLIST] Storing Mini-Discs

I have a substantial number of mini-discs (original recordings of
oral history interviews) and am trying to figure out the best way to
store them. I can't seem to find any appropriately sized archival
boxes and am hesitant (for a number of reasons) to simply use
plastic containers. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Digitally transfer them to two CD-Rs and store the CD-Rs. Or better
yet, if you have a managed digital archive that can accept them,
store them in that.
I don't think many of us think that MDs are archival. I wouldn't
worry about an archival box for a medium that probably isn't
archival. I don't think we can expect the long-term availability of
MD players as compared to CD players.
