We are a medium-sized public library system (nine branches) and have =

Subject: [Videolib] Benefit denial cases

=20

We are rapidly running out of room to continue double-shelving our DVD
collection. Our circulation people are asking for suggestions. We are a
medium-sized public library. When we first began buying DVDs we were =
na=EFve
enough to put them out on the shelf trusting that the "security" cases =
we
bought would work. Half of our opening collection disappeared, and we
realized that we would have to shelve the actual disks behind the circ =
desk
if we hoped to hang on to what we were buying.

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.

Thanks,=20

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.
