We live in an age when every library in every community must address security issues ranging from theft to the safety of staff and patrons. Pamela Cravey's Protecting Library Staff, Users, Collections, And Facilities is a pragmatic, step-by- step instructional guide for insuring staff and patron safety; securing general and special collections, electronic files and systems; and coping with the legal issues raised by various security measures. Libraries are deftly guided through the complexities of modern security, while being given practical recommendations for planning and executing a sound and responsible library security package. The key is to consider security a process, rather than an event. Protecting Library Staff, Users, Collections, And Facilities is a superbly presented "how-to" manual that is very highly recommended reading for librarians and library board members for urban, suburban, rural, public, academic, corporate, governmental, and private library systems.
