Closed stacks is still the best solution we've found. Regretible, I've
learned from 20+ years of experience that closed stacks do not guarantee that
videos will not "walk." Our closed stacks, now in the third location, are
behind a long public service desk that has limited access, and yet videos
disappear occasionally. Sometimes they will re-appear, tho' a few are never
returned. This is to say, unless your closed stacks are locked with limited
access which would make public service a hassle, expect a to "walk." Now, I
expect a few "walking videos." It goes with the territory and I just hope that
those "walkers" are the easily replaced titles which they usually are.
We also tried tattletape, but videos still "walked."

My 2 cents worth. Jane Agee
