We used to use black plastic cases, now we use clear with "pockets." They
work very well and are a bit less rigid than the old black ones so pieces
don't break off.

Dear Videolibers,

We've been using black plastic videocassette cases here at SFSU for years,
but finally somebody suggested going to clear cases - much less handling
by the staff because you can see if the right tape is in the box and if
it's rewound or not. I've located a couple distributors, but my question
is, have you had any experience with clear cases - any problems with
cracking, bad hinges, anything else that would be a problem?

Thanks in advance,
