How do you store camera batteries long term?

Hello everyone,

Hope you are well. I have some old cameras, and it is slowly getting difficult to get batteries for them. I bought some spares, and want to keep them long term. What is the best way to keep new batteries so that they don't die anytime soon? Should I keep them as is, or charge them and then store them or discharge them completely?

Many thanks in advance.
