Scotch Removable Magic Tape

From: Eric van der Luft <lufte>
Date: Thursday, November 17, 1994
Is Scotch Removable Magic Tape appropriate for affixing acquisitions
slips, cataloging notes, etc., to newly received books in process? Our
turnaround time between receiving a new book and getting it to the shelf
is usually only a few months and hardly ever more than a year.

    *   Is this tape safe for all paper and binding surfaces? For how

    *   Will it lift certain kinds of inks from certain kinds of paper
        after a certain period of time?

    *   Will it leave a mark on paper after a certain period of time?

    *   Will it tear paper after a certain period of time?

    *   How stable is the tape chemically?

Expert answers to these questions would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
