How prepared are you to keep your patrons, your staff and yourself safe in an emergency? For many reasons, academic and public libraries experience unique safety and security related problems. Because of the open nature of our libraries, compounded by their size, complexity and long hours of operation, they frequently serve as targets for theft, vandalism, violence against staff and other acts of misconduct.

Through formal and informal dialogue, this workshop will guide you through some self-assessment tools and help you develop an emergency response plan. Special emphasis will be placed upon practical implementation of safety and security programs and the exchange of ideas and experiences.

This workshop is a CAMLS/NOLA co-sponsored event.

Intended Audience
This CAMLS/NOLA program is designed for academic, and public library administrators and their staff. Library administrators are encouraged to invite both local and campus law enforcement officers concerned about the problems of library safety. Law enforcement officers should register at the CAMLS/NOLA member rate.
