Preserving the physical storage media

Physical storage media are the physical media recording the information of the records. Paper is the most commonly encountered medium in an archive. Although there are a number of paper types, it is generally stable and durable if they are kept in an archival storage environment and handled with care. The storage media for audiovisual records generally call for cooler temperature and lower relative humidity than paper so as to prolong the useful life of the records.
