    Subject: 3M tattle-tape

    Erich, thank you for the forward.  If this is of interest... The
    Music Library has used the 3-M tape for cassettes.  I am not sure if
    they are still selling the same type, but I will explain the type we
    have.  Mr. Willocks acquired these many years ago.  The tape is
    placed under the label that goes onto the cassette.  Pre-cut labels
    are provided with the tattle-tape. The labels are a bit slick
    (glossy) so typing on them is difficult, but they are usable.  We do
    not have experience with the CD or LP tattle-tapes, but have an
    interest in knowing more.  At present, we place a book tape into the
    containers of each.  It is fine if the perpetrator takes the entire
    item and not just the disc, itself.
