I need to list the available tapes each day that have space available and
can be used for backups.

You can use the following mminfo queries for instance :

Empty tapes :
mminfo -q "near,written=0,!volrecycle" -r volume,pool,barcode

Recyclable tapes :
mminfo -q "near,volrecycle" -r volume,pool,barcode

Partially filled tapes :
mminfo -q "near,!full,written>0" -r volume,pool,barcode,written

If you are interested in tapes that are not necessarily in your library,
you can remove the "near", and add "location" to the fields listed after
the -r.

And bash won't like the double quotes around a string with a "!"
in it so use single quotes.   And thanks; I should have known there were
batter ways for getting information via mminfo.
