Media Storage: Books, Magazines, DVD’s, etc.

  • There is no better way to store books than in boxes.  Do not over stuff, place books with the spine up and try to place like-sized books together with the heavier, larger books on the bottom.  Place thin strips of cardboard between layers of books.
  • Place all DVDs, CDS, and even VHS if you still have them in air tight containers that can be zip-sealed shut.
  • Newspapers and magazine can degrade quickly and are sensitive to the elements.  Place important pieces in plastic zip-sealed containers and avoid stacking any paper-based media that could meld together or fade.
