Magnetic Tape (Audio, Video or Computer): Storage and Care Self-Evaluation Form.
Ellison, John W.
This self-evaluation form for magnetic tape storage and care was designed to assist librarians who work with active non-book collections. Developed from an extensive literature search on the storage and care of non-book materials, this form has been field tested for value and usability in 20 institutions representing a variety of types of library situations, and revised on the basis of field test results and recommendations made by several non-book authorities. Forms developed for other media formats are listed, as well as sources for rental of related slide tape productions. A rationale for having a storage and care program is discussed and recommendations are made. An extensive bibliography on the care of magnetic tapes, and a bibliography on miscellaneous non-book media are included. (CMV)
