  • Description

Myriad security issues face today's libraries - from theft to staff and patron safety. This is a pragmatic, step-by-step guide to ensuring staff and patron safety; securing general and special collections, electronic files and systems; and coping with the legal issues raised by various security measures. Cravey guides librarians through the complexities of modern security, and offers practical recommendations on planning and executing a sound and responsible security package. Chapters cover the causes of library vulnerabilities and propose realistic solutions, costs, types of systems, and the creation of safe environments. Diverse approaches for libraries of different sizes and needs - with ideas from small improvements to comprehensive efforts - are included.
