Barcodes sound good, but the RFID reminds me of libraries with thsoe
anti thrft magnets in them... and how they erase those magents when
you check them out... Not a pretty thought!

We need to renumber some of our older accessions and have been
barcodes with the accession number included. It was suggested to me
that we could be using RFID (radio frequency ID). As I know virtually
nothing about them I have an uneasy feeling about applying this

Does any audio visual archive use this technology on its tape boxes
Is there any danger to the magnetic tape itself, considering both the
and reel would need the same identifier?
Can the actual accession number be put on these so as to be seen
Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
