video processing

Hi All,

OK, may not be the most exciting question, but I am looking for other
opinions/options for lableing and processing videotapes. Our tech services
dept. would like to "streamline" the processing and labeling of videos in
our collection. Currently we have title labels on the top and spine of
each video, as well as a bar code and the College's name and address on the
top of the video. The labels are taped on to prevent peeling off. We
also have a spine title label and a "Please Do Not Desensitize" label on
each outer case. Does anyone have a less cumbersome labeling process? Can
we get away with fewer labels? Anyone think taping over the labels is
redundant? Have others had problems with the labels peeling off?

I'd be curious to know how others label their tapes to make them easily
identifiable and "VCR friendly". Is there a minimum folks think we can get
away with? Any and all feedback appreciated. Forgive me if this has
already been discussed to death - I just don't remember if it has.

Thanks much for your thoughts!
