We barcode on the back of the CD box but use a round CD label (such as from
Highsmith etc.) that we stamp with Santa Rosa Junior College - Media
Services (a half moon stamp to fit with the curve) and then put the CD
identification on the bottom half of the label (CD-102 etc.) We keep the
CD's behind the counter and check-out using the barcode so we don't use any
kind of a Tattle strip at this time. And before we check-in we're always
SUPPOSED to open to be sure the CD is in the case...
