  We are about to replace some of our shelf dummies.  These point
patrons to
microfilm for individual missing journal volumes.  Despite what I
was clear wording, we've had some people shred dummies apart.
some patrons think that the journal is in there, if they could only get
that tape off.  I hope the new ones will be more obvious, since the guts
made of styrofoam (light reading?).

  What wording do you use on your shelf dummies?  I'd like to see the
wording you use, especially if you've hit on something that clearly gets
message across.

Thanks in advance,
