AD USers and Computers:
1. Created OU called Circulation
2.moved 5 users from Users to Circulation OU
3.opened GP Management
4.created policy linked to Circulation OU

Question: Security filtering has Authenticated users. Do I remove that entry? Do I have to add the 5 users from Circulation OU there?

Whats the point of moving those 5 users into the Circulation OU if i have to add them to the policy security filtering anyway? Seems so redundant.

The fact that "authenticated users" is in there means that be default it applies to all the members of the OU. LEAVE IT ALONE. Security filtering should only be used in extreme cases and as a last resort where you want to prevent some members in an OU from getting a policy and there is no other option available.
