Abstract

The figure shows a diskette cartridge 3 inserted in the protective envelope 4. A split medium label has a small portion 5 applied to the diskette and a larger portion 6 carried by the protective envelope. Two label fields, one on each portion of the label allows the user to unambiguously tie the cartridge to its envelope by entering in each field a matching serial number or title. These fields should be adjacent when the cartridge is in the envelope to allow easy verification. Space for additional information, such as dates, unused records or other facts related to the diskette, is provided on the envelope portion of the label.

Split Labels for Diskette

The figure shows a diskette cartridge 3 inserted in the protective envelope 4. A split medium label has a small portion 5 applied to the diskette and a larger portion 6 carried by the protective envelope. Two label fields, one on each portion of the label allows the user to unambiguously tie the cartridge to its envelope by entering in each field a matching serial number or title. These fields should be adjacent when the cartridge is in the envelope to allow easy verification. Space for additional information, such as dates, unused records or other facts related to the diskette, is provided on the envelope portion of the label. Partitioning the user label in this manner provides strong motivation for the user to place the diskette in the envelope when not in use to better protect the medium from airborne debris, fingerprints and other handling damage. Also, information can be added to the label while the cartridge is in use in the drive and debris originating from writing on the label is further removed from the cartridge and is less likely to fall into the head access slot or center hole.
