    Labels and catalogs magnetic tapes/cassettes for use by computer operations. Maintains records about tape location. Reads tapes from a terminal to determine their status. Removes old tapes for storage. Takes corrective action on damaged tapes. Determines if tape . Magnetic tape is composed of two main layers: the base film and the magnetic layer. Additionally, many tapes are back matted for improved winding properties, and to reduce electrostatic charges. Figure 9: Layers of magnetic tape. Figure Cross sections of different audio magnetic tapes. Back coating may also be found on LP and DP tapes.

      Magnetic tape was also often frequently used, as in the Library of Congress lot used by the researchers, to back up earlier recordings made on . Magnetic tape is a medium for magnetic recording, made of a thin, magnetizable coating on a long, narrow strip of plastic was developed in Germany in , based on magnetic wire s that record and play back audio and video using magnetic tape are tape recorders and video tape recorders respectively. A device that stores computer data on magnetic tape is known as a tape.

      Archival boxes for all objects, training in safe procedures for records handling, and the monitoring of environmental conditions are all examples of preventive conservation. Interventive Conservation The treatment of objects, including direct manipulation of the material. Some examples carried out at the NAA include removal of adhesive tapes. Passive preventive maintenance involves taking care of the system by providing the best possible environment—both physical and electrical—for the system. Physical concerns include conditions such as ambient temperature, thermal stress from power cycling, dust and smoke contamination, and disturbances such as shock and vibration.

RECOMMENDED ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND HANDLING PROCEDURES FOR MAGNETIC !u!;SS10N HAFT Written by Data Archives Branch National Archives F, Records Service' Approved For Release / CIA-RDPR Approved For Release /04/ CIA-RDPR Care and Handling. Magnetic tape should receive the same kind of care that you would give to a valuable book or important photograph.

In general, handle the tapes with care, keep them clean, and apply common sense: Use and store magnetic tape reels and cassettes in a clean environment. The Ampex Recording Media Corporation, a U.S. magnetic tape manufacturer, has developed many informational and training materials about magnetic tape.

The “Guide to the Care and Handling of Magnetic Tape” is reproduced here with the permission of the Ampex Recording Media Corporation. Additions, changes, and comments by NML are shown in square brackets [ ]. Some of the sections of. Magnetic Squares - Self Adhesive Magnetic Squares (Each 4/5" x 4/5") - Flexible Sticky Magnets - Peel & Stick Magnetic Sheets - Tape is Alternative to Magnetic Stickers, Magnetic Strip.

Tape should be tied at the top or fore-edge of the textblock to prevent bows and ties from damaging adjacent volumes. Handling Bound Volumes.

Poor handling procedures can cause significant damage to books, resulting in restricted, delayed, or discontinued use, or requiring expensive treatments before the volume can be used again. Handling and storage of magnetic tape 1 Handling of magnetic tape – Only high quality tapes should be used, preferably those with a proven good long-term performance.

– Cleanliness is extremely important in the recording area. Smoking, eating and drinking should not be permitted. CHAPTER 9 MAGNETIC TAPE STORAGE INTRODUCTION Computers use three types of storage devices to store and access data. These are main memory storage, secondary memory storage, and tertiary storage.

Main memory is the memory in the computer itself. It can be semiconductor RAM, magnetic core memory, or thin film ary memory storage is memory used to store. Store tape vertically, in its proper container. Never store tape at less than 46° F, as it will cause damage to the tape.

Store in areas where environmental conditions such as heat, light, humidity, and dust will least likely affect the media. Floppy disks/diskettes should be secured in non-abrasive envelopes. Care and Handling. title: handbook of recommended environmental conditions and handling procedures for magnetic tape subject: handbook of recommended environmental conditions and handling procedures for magnetic tape.

We have been hearing for decades that controlling environmental conditions is the single most important action that a library can take to ensure a long life for collections of all types The aging of books, papers, photographs, film, magnetic tape, and discs is inextricably linked to the conditions under which they are stored.

87 $ $ ISO concerns the care and handling of magnetic recording tape during use. It addresses the issues of physical integrity of the medium necessary to preserve access to the data (information) recorded on the tape. ISO recommends handling procedures to maximize the effective life of magnetic tape.

Creases usually are cause by poor wrap in the tape pack. These are aggravated by poor handling and undesirable environmental conditions. Recovery is possible is you follow the procedure recommended in item 3. Torn tape in the middle of the pack. This is a sure sign that the tape was subjected to temperature and humidity extremes, either in.

The longer records need to be maintained the more important preservation methods, back-up procedures, storage conditions, handling procedures, and security become. Offline storage can be stored in-house, off-site, or outsourced.

Examples of offline storage include: Removable magnetic or optical media (tape, DVD). Magnetic tape was initially designed for sound recording. German engineers developed an audio tape recording machine called the magnetophone during World War II.U.S. and British researchers adopted the basic design of this device to create a magnetic tape recorder capable of high-quality sound reproduction in the late s.

Within a decade magnetic tape supplanted phonograph records for. handling of media (tape cartridges). Proper care by your staff is important to prevent inadvertent errors and media damage. Your tape cartridges must be managed, handled and stored properly.

A step-by-step guide to magnetic tape data cartridge care and handling follows: Upon Receiving New Cartridges: 1) Inventory and inspect the delivery. One magnetic tape storage advantage is its physical lightweight and easy portability. Magnetic tapes can be easily transported to a secure, off-site location.

A data vault, for example. This affords better protection and security. Off-site magnetic tapes are protected from disasters (fire, flood, theft, etc.) the main site may experience. l Magnetic tape is less prone to damage than other forms of magnetic storage media PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF MAGNETIC TAPE Magnetic tape comes in a variety of widths and lengths.

It maybe contained in one of three categories of storage media: industry standard open reels, cartridges, or cassettes.

Figure shows the different categories of magnetic tape media. Brief Guidelines These brief guidelines are intended to provide advice to those in libraries and elsewhere who have occasion to ship magnetic tape and/or optical disk (CD-ROM or CD-R) recordings. General It is the responsibility of the lending library to specify the method of shipment for return of materials.

The lending library may place a limit on the amount of such materials to be lent at. Videotapes are fragile—subject to damage and deterioration from exposure to poor environmental conditions and inadequate handling practices.

Even if properly cared for, magnetic tape may last for only a few decades. Storage: -Playback Devices must be cared for and cleaned regularly following recommended maintenance procedures.

Protect. Use and Handling Tips for Magnetic Media • Minimize handling as much as possible. • Avoid touching the surface of any tape. • Do not use commercial products to clean tape. • Return tapes and diskettes to their individual boxes. • Store upright, like books.

• Store in clean, cool, dry environment and away from magnetic field.Describe the proper procedures for handling, storing, and packaging magnetic tape, tape reels, and tape cartridges.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF MAGNETIC TAPE The three basic materials used to make magnetic tape are (1) the base material, (2) the coating of magnetic oxide particles, and (3) the glue to bind the oxide particles onto the base material.HANDLING MAGNETIC TAPE.

A magnetic tape reel or cartridge should always be in one of two places, either mounted on a tape recorder or in its storage container. When you handle magnetic tape, follow these rules: DO use extreme care when handling magnetic tape.

Careless handling can damage magnetic tape, tape reels, and tape cartridges.
