We have been using the 3M security strips on video tapes for years. They =
are placed along the spine (where a title label may be on some videos), =
and are covered with a blank white label, which we stamp with the =
library's name and address. It requires a different de- (and =
re-)sensitizing block from the books, which is the biggest caveat for =
circulation staff, since the book magnet will mess up the recorded =
contents. They are designed specifically for videos and don't interfere =
with the operation of the cassette. There is also a shorter version for =
audio cassettes. I haven't noticed a lot of strips which have been =
peeled off in the library; the inside theft is a different matter, and I =
am not sure there is much we can do about that without some real =
evidence as to who is doing it.
DVDs and music CDs are in Kwik Cases that have a 3M strip inside the =
case - these are unlocked at the circ desk. There is no security strip =
in the disc packaging itself.

Subject: [Videolib] Targeting videos

If you have your videos out on the floor, what do you do to prevent =
people
from walking off with them? Do you put targets right on the cassette
itself? If it is, does it interfere with putting the tape in the =
player, or
ejecting it? Is it visible to patrons, or is it possibly under the =
piece
that flips up to show the tape? We are experiencing a great deal of =
theft
of our videos - they are on open shelves, in clamshell cases. We are at =
our
wit's end. You can reply direct to me. Thanks in advance. (whimper, =
moan,
etc.)
