I don't know if you have these in the States, but I found a metal stationery
cabinet with slightly deeper than usual drawers in a supplier's catalogue
and have used it ever since. The DATs sit on edge on a long side with about
5mm clearance to the drawer top, so what you see as you open the drawer is
several rows of title spines, ready for selection.
