We use Hangup bags from Monaco LLC (website:
The Bag Style 5 fits laserdiscs; then all you need is a pole to hang them
along. Oure equipment shop put in metal rails, from one wall to another,
to hang the bags from. We've just gone to space-saving shelving for our
videotapes, and the company that made it, I'm told, will make
laserdisc-sized shelving as well. If it's just a few discs, the Monaco
site has a floor rack system that might do. Once you have the discs in
bags anybody can move them, and it's better storage for the discs.

Hope this helps.
