High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! There are multiple
types of magnetic media, however this article focuses on
recommended best practices for handling, cleaning and storage of
magnetic audiotapes in an archival repository, either in the form
of open reels or enclosed cassettes. Although digitization of
materials on fragile magnetic media in library and information
science is a common practice, this article focuses on conserving
the actual physical magnetic tape and playback equipment as
artifacts, as there is still a need for this. The first magnetic
tapes were manufactured by BASF in Germany in 1932. These were
designed with iron carbonyl as the magnetic pigment mixed into the
cellulose acetate carrier. Production soon moved to iron oxide
coated onto cellulose acetate rolls cut into uniform strips wound
onto plastic or metal hubs. Recordists began recording sound on
magnetic media in the twenties in the form of magnetic wire.
