We've been using a 1x3 label with full call #, Title, description and our
stamp on the top side, covered with thin label-covering tape and it works
well.  We print the labels on the computer and use the same labels for a
card and the plastic case, inserting the card into the flat side of the
case inside of a pocket.  So far it works fine.  Full cataloging using
MRDF as the prefix, of course, and we interfile with the rest of our
computer software.  (Machine-readable data file: works for any kind of
computer file - even holorith cards - and the description provides
pertinent info to the user as to machine format.)  I think this is sound,
but am always willing to hear new ideas.  However, with 15 libraries to
be concerned about, and make changes in, I don't pick up new ideas and
make retrospective changes real quickly, so this has been used for about
8 years on our software and so far we've adapted it for all kinds of formats.
