Hi all,
we put barcodes inside, exactly for that reason. I even try to put the
barcode in such a place on double disk dvds so that we have to flip the
inner holder out of the way before the barcode is wanded (is that a verb
now) so we can be sure both disks are returned.

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

Many thanks.
