Hello Constance,

I was a video librarian at Central a couple of years ago. At a trade show
Rebecca Wilkins (now head of Languages and Lit. Division) and I both picked
up little plastic devices with razor blades in them which are very useful
for opening video packages they tear through the plastic and all the
different seals very easily. If this is what you're asking about and
they're not expensive I'd get one ASAP. Rebecca might still have one around.

Hope this helps.
