deteriorating tape

Some of our older film have been spliced together with tape that is now yellow and brittle. If you can remove it gently without damaging information (images on the film), then please feel free to take some of it off but do not risk the film’s contents or integrity.

Use the splicer to apply a new piece of splicing tape over the old join(s); please do this to both sides of the film.

Feel free to  bring extreme cases to Deb or Sarah for further consultation.

In the database, note “brittle tape” or “yellowed tape” in the “Condition of Microfilm” field, and add “new splicing tape applied”
