Security Solutions: To Preserve and Protect
Theft plagues large and small organizations nationwide. We all could use a little more protection against collections theft. In fact, in a 2009 statewide survey, it was revealed that 54% of organizations in NY do not even have reading room security protocols in place. Are you one of these organizations? Protect yourselves and your collections! Any organization seeking to provide the best possible security for its collections must put in place coordinated policies that address threats for long term sustainable access to the public. With careful planning, awareness of warning signs, and proactive low cost security solutions, organizations can reduce the window of opportunity for theft of historical collections. Don't miss out on this fantastic training session taught by an expert in the field which will be offered in TWO locations!
