I have to agree with everyone else. We even had the cases in security
cases and they still walked. We lost almost 300 titles, before we
decided to go with a double shelving system. It's a pain. It takes a
long time. Discs in the file cabinets still go missing because of
misfiling. But the loss rate is pretty much limited to what doesn't get
returned. The loss of items missing on the shelf is pretty low.

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.
