Lyrasis Class: Security in and with Collections
February 16, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$75 – $100
Description: Security is an important part of collections management. But many libraries, archives, and museums do not give it enough attention because theft and vandalism don’t happen, only to other institutions. Even when an agency has security procedures, they may not always follow them. In this class we will address incorporating security into the mission of your institution and look at survey tools that can help you develop or review security procedures.
Instructor: Annie Peterson
