Hi all,
This is directed primarily to public libraries. We have been looking at and cleaning fingerprints, etc. as necessary off each DVD as it is returned. However, our circulation is now up to 17,000 per month and it is very time consuming.
How many other public libraries check each disc as it is returned? And if you don't, do you have many problems with the wrong discs being returned on your case or patrons reporting problems with playing the discs that are not clean?
Yesterday we had a local video store's disc returned in our case and one disc of a two disc set was not returned. These are some of the problems we discover by checking each disc.
Any information you could pass my way will be helpful as we look at this problem.
