We use the 3M tattletape for CDs and DVDs. Occasionally we lose one, but it's pretty rare. We are more likely to get the case returned without the DVD where the patron has just forgotten to put it in! All our AV materials are out on the shelves.

Lately I've been reading about benefit denial cases. Would any library who has used these cases please let me know if they really work? Or if you've come up with another solution to this problem, I would love to hear it.

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.
