I'm wondering how other institutions are storing broken or cracked glass transcription discs, a.k.a instantaneous discs, lacquer discs, etc.
What kinds of housings are other archives using for these fragile and fragmented objects?
Is the same housing used for broken or cracked shellacs?
Are these stored flat?
Any contribution towards a discussion of best practice with these discs is appreciated.
