    This query comes from a person who is not on the DistList and
    will not see any responses that are posted here.  Please respond 
    directly to sender and if of general interest post it here as well

My name is Jim Roberts and I am the Research Director for KTBS, the
ABC network affiliate television station in Shreveport, Louisiana.
We have a very large video tape archive that includes for 3/4" and
1/2" tapes.  We are trying to find a solution to both the storage
problem (they take up a lot of space), the deterioration problem
(many of the tapes date back to the early 1980's), and the access
problem.  Because of the antiquated system in place then, it is
extremely hard to find a particular story or event effectively and
quickly.  Friday I accessed the Conservation OnLine web site and
thought that I might not be the only one in this dilemma and that
someone out here had either found a reasonable solution or was
further ahead then KTBS.  If you can be of help in this matter,
please let me know. Thanks for your help,

Jim Roberts
Research Director
