Hello, Videolib members

I am brand-new to this list, and have several questions already.

How much time do you spend, on average, in previewing videos etc. before
cataloging them? What seems to be the rate with which you have to return
material because of faults in production? Who does the previewing? What
about cassettes?

Is there a security strip, tattle tape or similar product, for videos,
and if so, where is it applied?

I will appreciate any information you care to share. Thanks.
