Participatory Session: Let’s Be Honest: Speaking Openly about the Reality of Special Collections Security
Sponsored by Daniel J. Slive
While we know that one of our most important responsibilities is to ensure that our collections are secure, we live the reality of limited resources that do not include dedicated security staff; moreover, we have little time or institutional support to implement all of the recommendations in the ACRL/RBMS Guidelines Regarding Security and Theft. This session will be led by representatives from a variety of types of institutions who will discuss establishing security priorities, sharing what works and what doesn’t, and what, perhaps, is rarely done.
Specific topics will be determined by a survey conducted before the conference; session attendees will be encouraged to contribute to this open, frank discussion. To ensure confidentiality, we will not record this session and ask attendees to refrain from posting identifying details to social media.
