Our relatively small collection (2000 titles) is in open stacks except =
locked glass shelves for:
high end priced videos
titles which seem to walk easily because of subject matter (we all know =
the ones)
DVD titles in jewel boxes
It should be noted that 98% of our collection is educational videos, not =
feature films. We are purchasing more feature films in DVD format however =
and we keep the DVD boxes with others in open stacks and the DVDs in jewel =
boxes. All our videos have 3M security strips that we can desentize upon =
cirulation.

I've been reading the various responses to the University of Montana media
survey. I'd be curious to know of *any* academic library has their media
resources collection either in open stacks, either integrated into the
print collection or separate from it. It seems to me that we've had this
discussion before on the listserv and I remember only one academic library
with this arrangement. -- Kris
