Theft in Libraries
Synthesis of findings presented at the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) 2016 session of the same name, and presentation of some of the key issues in this progressing field. This popular IFLA session focused on highlighting the importance of recording thefts internationally with the aim to de-stigmatise the reporting of thefts (something which still many libraries will not make publicly aware). It also looked at methods of raising public awareness towards provenance of cultural heritage items, and to continuing to build bridges between the curatorial and commercial arms of the cultural heritage profession. Daryl will also report on the developing work between IFLA the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).
- Understanding the nature of theft and cultural heritage
- Knowledge of ways to protect from and deter theft
