Our library media center uses closed stacks for all media and items still
manage to walk away. Since all items are in the online system, browsing is
as simple as typing S=Feature Films.

>I would like to know if your library/media center places
videos/dvds/audiocassettes/laserdiscs/other media formats, behind the
circulation counter or out in the open stacks?
>Currently, students/faculty must request the titles they want from the
>circulation counter. You are not allowed to browse the collection since
>it is behing the circulation counter.
