You also need people security and not just gates that go off. You also
need guidelines that allow you to search someones backpack or bag. We
have the entire CD collection in security qwik cases that open by magnet
and we still lose items. With VHS we have open stacks and security strips
(we're a public library). We are contantly getting ripped off.
