Analog Cassette Preservation

Today I am re-housing the analog audio cassette tapes from the Literary Women Series into new archival quality cases. These tapes came to the library either without cases, or the cases were lost somewhere along the way due to standard patron use and were being housed in archival quality boxes. However, these great little bits of Long Beach history will now have an additional layer of protection from early degradation! I love the click sound that the case makes when it closes…I’m sure that is only something an archivist would love.
