Title
Research on Magnetic Media Deterioration Before and After 1995
Summary
Since John van Bogart's seminal work "Magnetic Tape Storage and Handling" published by the Commission on Preservation and Access (now CLIR) in 1995, a variety of tools and techniques have been developed by the collections management community to identify magnetic media collections that are at risk and conduct conservation activities. One important tool is the videotape identification guide, www.video-id.com/, which was prepared by the speaker. This talk will review current research needs for the preservation of magnetic tape and film. The lecture is featured as part of the Library Preservation Directorate's "Topics in Preservation Science" series.
