Before we do this, however, we need to be sure that electro-magnetic fields in those areas are not above tolerance, in order not to damage the recordings.  I have some information on acceptable levels for this sort of material, but we don't have a gauss meter or other measuring device, and no one on staff has the expertise to wield such a thing.  TCU Physical Plant doesn't have a device or the necessary expertise either.
