Scanning Negatives - Concerns Over Drying & Damage

Film processing forum from Photo.net - photo.net
Hey Everyone,

I've been scanning some archived negatives from 1970's. I was recently talking to someone about scanning them and they said to me :

"I am concerned about the double-scanning--meaning each time the negatives are handled and scanned they dry out a little more"

Now I'm not a master technician but I've been shooting film for 6-7 years and I've never heard of anything like this. I'm using archival gloves to handle everything and everything is stored in dust free sleeves, away from sunlight in a constant temperature. But this statement seems totally stupid to me.

I am really hoping to know what you guys think.
