We use the CD security labels from:
http://www.shopperinc.com/

They are considerably cheaper than the 3M ones, and they have worked
well for us. They certainly aren't perfect, and we haven't recently
compared them to the 3M ones when it comes to how well they work, but
it is rare that we find a disc missing from a box.

For double sided ones, we have a security holder that goes around the
box, and all of our DVD boxes have tattle tape. We unlock the boxes
when they check them out.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
