I'm interested in this, too, but from a slightly different angle. Our =
circulation department is planning to begin self holds pick-up. They =
propose to put media holds in plain envelopes with the name of the =
patron on the wrapper. While you won't be able to see what's in the =
envelope, it won't take people long to realize that all envelopes are =
media, and based on past experience, I would expect to see these begin =
to disappear from the shelf.

How do those of you with self pick-up of holds handle this?=20

Hi!
We are in the middle of a compact disc conversion - from using Alpha =
Security Cases(3 types! no less) to double shelving - empty case on the =
shelf, with an accession number on the cover, and the disc in a pocket =
with the same accession number in a locked cabinet in back of the circ =
desk on 2nd floor. We did this last year with our dvds, and our loss =
has gone down, except for titles that fall into the transit black hole =
of Calcutta between lcoations. Also, the cds will take up less room on =
the shelf if they aren't in security cases. However, processing these =
is time consuming, and expensive in terms of not only supplies but also =
staff time.

Hi again,

Now that I've got the hang of sending the group questions, I'm back =
again with another that I'm hoping to get some quick input on. My boss =
is checking to see what other libraries are doing about using -- or not =
using, security cases on AV materials (such as music CDs, VHS, DVDs, =

whether the libraries that have decided to drop using security cases =
have experienced any increase in lost/stolen materials. Thanks for any =
help you can offer.
