We need to renumber some of our older accessions and have been considering
barcodes with the accession number included. It was suggested to me today
that we could be using RFID (radio frequency ID). As I know virtually
nothing about them I have an uneasy feeling about applying this technology
to magnetic tape boxes and reels.
Does any audio visual archive use this technology on its tape boxes and/or
Is there any danger to the magnetic tape itself, considering both the box
and reel would need the same identifier?
Can the actual accession number be put on these so as to be seen visibly?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
