Re: [ARSCLIST] refresh plan

Sorry, guess I wasn't very clear there, was I?
Our collection will eventually consist of roughly 15,000 Mitsui Gold CD-Rs, each of which holds one copy of an analog recording. Say 6,000 will be in a semi-closed archive, used only when the mp3 copies do not have high enough sound resolution for our linguistic researcher. 9,000 will be stored in a closed archive, only handled to make another CD copy if one of the 6,000 is lost or damaged. Between the semi-closed and closed archives, we'll have five copies of each recording, each on a separate CD.
Is that enough information? Thanks so much for your help.

Are these commercial, moulded CDs, or are they CDs written in a

How often will they be handled?
