All the tapes are shelved behind a desk so it's either student employees
or custodial staff. We suspect the latter because students know better
and also because when this began late last summer, we had only a few
students working and they were all experienced and highly trusted.
So here's my question: Have any of you dealt with this problem?
We are considering moving all the feature films on VHS to locking
cabinets, so we could eliminate the possibiity of theft by the
custodians. If that doesn't work, I don't know what we will do.
Frankly, if it's one or more student employees, we're doomed...
Do any of you use locking cabinets to shelve any or all of your
videocassetes? Any other suggestions?
Help! This is annoying as well as expensive... I'm on the verge of
shifting to 100% laserdisc for feature films, but I like the flexibility
of having both VHS and laserdisc.
