Insurance for digital and analog images?

I have about 50,000 slides and over 50,000 digital images of the country of Belize in my photo stock inventory. These images become more valuable all the time. Does anyone recommend buying insurance against loss of the slides through fire, water damage, etc, or loss of the digital images through hard drive failure and backup loss? If so, how do you value the images?
