I too have major destruction of slide images that were made as little as
twenty years ago and kept in relatively good storage,  and I would
recommend the book The Permanence and Care of Color Photographs:
Traditional and Digital Color Prints, Color Negatives, Slides, and Motion
Pictures. by Henry Wilhelm and Carol Brower. Preservation Publishing
Company  1993, ISBN 0-911515-00-3. 1-515-236-5575.
If permanence of image is a priority for you than this book will help you
make some difficult choices. No one film has all the answers.. not yet
