Issues of library security have been around for as long as libraries have been in existence. However, only recently have librarians been concerned with the whole realm of library security. In eight chapters, this annotated bibliography covers issues of library safety from the more commonplace concerns over the security of the collection and the safety of the staff and patrons to the less obvious concerns for disaster preparedness, preservation and conservation of materials, wellness issues, and building design. This thorough bibliography includes a whole host of media including theses and dissertations, Internet sites, videos, sound recordings, conference proceedings, and serials. A comprehensive guide, Safe at Work? fills a gap in library-specific literature. An essential tool for librarians of every stripe, this book provides excellent coverage of issues of vital importance to library administration.
