Good morning all!

CBS This Morning is currently running a story on preserving CDs.  They were at the Library of Congress lab and the story was titled "Destroy to Preserve".

It is not on their website yet, but keep your eyes open!  They gave some helpful hints about not using labels and not writing on CDs.  They also showed how conservators are testing longevity via aging tests.

Great to see this in the popular media!
