Sequential-access memory device, Basic Computer Science

Sequential-access memory device:

A  Sequential-access  memory device reads data in sequence. In other words, information on a serial device can only be retrieved in the same sequence in which it is stored. Data is recorded one after another in a predetermined sequence (such as in numeric order) on a storage medium. Sequential processing is quite suitable for such applications like preparation of monthly pay slips, or monthly electronic bills etc., where each address needs to be accessed in turn. If you are working with a sequential access device and information is stored at the last address, then data stored at the last address cannot be accessed until all preceding locations in the sequence have been traversed. That is locating an individual item of data requires searching the  recorded data on the tape until the desired item is located.
