NIST CD/DVD Preservation Guide

NIST, under the Digital Preservation Program, has released a guide which provides methods for care and handling of CDs and DVDs. For those that don't know, the DO degrade over time and the usual abuse (handling, label adhesives, direct sunlight, etc.) speeds up the process. For those of you old enough to remember vinyl, many of the precautions sound very familiar.

Scraped from Slashdot.
