what to do with old slides…?

If you are an artist who has practiced solidly for the last 25 to 30 years, and you have spent any time teaching/applying  for teaching jobs….you no doubt have hundreds of slides of former work. I have stored mine for years in two serious black metal three drawer cabinets.
But just yesterday, I was in the local university library, making use of their Nikon slide scanner, beginning the odious and seemingly endless task of scanning my slides and saving the digital files to then edit….. so what is everyone else doing? To save or not to save… that is the question.

I've been a painter for about 30 years. I also draw and make monotypes, linocuts and other prints. I like tangled stuff.
