I don't think there's any perfect way, unless you have locked cases, where
staff must do the retrieval, or closed access storage. We lost over half of
our small pop Spanish language collection due to walkaways. They were in
Alpha security cases. When we noticied the disappearances, we even tried
targeting the inside of the jewel case in back of the grey middle section,
where no one could see the target. The cd's still walked away. We put our
Spanish CDs with our rock titles in locked cases. Now, very little theft.
I know this is probably not what you wanted to read, but good luck anyway.
