Prior to some remodeling here last Summer, we had the DVDs on racks =
designed for VHS - wire racks on slatboard fixtures. Since we also use =
the Kwik-Cases for security, it meant that they didn't stay upright =
unless the shelf was full. We now have some browser bins designed for =
CDs and previously owned by a local record store which closed down. The =
DVDs are still in Kwik-Cases but are face out, and sorted alphabetically =
only by the first letter of the title. Since none of them stay on the =
shelves for very long, this seems to work just fine, although our =
patrons seem to have difficulty in understanding the alphabetical =
concept and we are constantly having to "clean up" after them. At least =
they stay put on the fixtures themselves.

Subject: [Videolib] DVD shelving

Greetings,

We have a growing collection of over 4,000 DVD titles, and are beginning =
to
outgrow our shelving units. We use "kwik-case" security cases, and
currently the DVDs are shelved on perimeter glass shelving with a slight
angle to the shelves. This has worked well since the boxes have a =
tendency
to fall over, and this 10% angle helps them stay put to some extent.
However, we are quickly outgrowing this space, so the only existing =
option
right now is standard metal bookshelves. We used the metal shelves for =
a
short time, and the DVDs were always a mess!

Wondering if anyone else out there is in a similar position, and if any
solution has been discovered...

Thanks in advance,
Tracy Montri
