Ours are on the insert under the cover for cds, and on the case for DVDs.
However, part of our training includes the fact that we ALWAYS open every
case - to make sure the item(s) are there, that the items are ours, and that
noone took a bite out of them. This is just standard procedure. Hope this

Subject: [Videolib] Checkout barcodes on the inside of CD and DVD boxes

Do any of you put these barcodes on the inside of CD and DVD boxes? Can
anyone thing of a disadvantage in doing so? Our students do not always
verify the contents of returns, inspite of numerous reminders {aka
nagging}, and the library system doesn't keep last borrower. We end up
with empty boxes and no way to retrieve the contents.

Many thanks.
