We are looking for alternatives to security cases for DVDs and music CDs in
a public library setting so that patrons are able to check out using
self-checkout machines but the library does not have a huge loss rate.

1. Has anyone found a security alternative that does not affect play-
ability of the media and does not involve staff assistance before checkout?

2. If you use security cases, have you tried having the security-case-
remover at the self-checkout machine? If so, how well did it work or not
work?

3. If you do not use security, what is your loss rate?

I am interested in both the public and academic library experience.

Thanks,
