We had to go to a double shelving method, also. We had the cases, with
the discs in security cases, and they were walking out the door. Before
the cases are put out, the case is given an accession number sticker,
and a corresponding sticker is put on a sleeve/pocket that holds the
disc. The accession number is written on the donut circle label. The
empty case is put out for patrons to see, and the discs, in their
pockets, are put in a filing cabinet in numerical order by accession
number. When a patron comes to the desk with a case, we go to the file
cabinet and retrieve the disc only. The pocket stays in place in the
cabinet. When returned, if the clerk doesn't have time at that point to
return the disc to its pocket, they have to put the entire case with the
disc in the top drawer of the file cabinet, and lock it. Later, when it
is not busy, the clerk then returns to the file cabinet, and returns any
discs to their pockets. It is very time consuming, but we have had a
rash of theft of new titles, and it could only be from people on staff.
