Storing CDs and DVDs

This quick tip is courtesy of the Genealogy Gems newsletter published by the Allen County Public Library's Genealogy Center, Steve Myers & Curt Witcher, co-editors.

Store CDs and DVDs in the same manner you would store books: on end, not flat. If you have a large number of discs, stacking them on top of each other can increase the chances of some cracking or being scratched by dust trapped between the discs. Ideally, each disc should be in its own case with each case bearing an appropriate descriptive label.
