David,

Thanks for adding your thoughts/expertise to the article about CD/DVD
longevity.
I wonder if you (or others on the group) would like to comment on the use of
the clear plastic CD/DVD protection labels:
(Like these: http://www.shopbrodart.com/shop/cb/product.aspx?pgid=1196)

Since the article mentioned that it's actually the label side of discs that
are most prone to damage, I wonder if applying these labels is a good idea
for libraries? I know these are often used in combination with 3M security
strips, but even for those of us with closed-stack collections, I'm curious
about whether these protectors actually extend the life of CD/DVDs....or
are just a "gimmick."

Questions:

Has anyone out there been using these disc protectors?

Do they hold up (not start to peel off, get sticky, etc.) over time?

Have you noticed a reduction in disc wear/tear/damage after using them?
