Open shelving and classing of video
Sun, 11 Aug 1996 13:00:22 +0300 (EET-DST)

Hi everybody,

We have about 4000 videos in open shelves, classified according to L.C.
system. We catalog and file by accession number.
Students looking for a video in the catalog and than going to the
shelf to take the video. We have a big hall which contains 13 monitors,
librarian desk and behind that desk the vcr system. The librarian gets the
video from the student and put it in a free vcr. This system works about 10
years and we loose about 2-5 videos per year by stealing.
We loan videos only for presentation in class for teachers and students as
well. All our videos cheap and expensive are in the same shelves
