Library Trends 33 (1) Summer 1984: Protecting the Library. Edited by Alan Jay Lincoln

This issue of Library Trends, “Protecting the Library,” deals with a topic that as recently as twenty years ago may have been met with, at most, passing interest. This is not to say that problems of crime and disruption were not affecting libraries, but that the problems were scattered and generally not perceived as serious. Book theft certainly has affected libraries for much of their history. This collection of articles will examine a full range of issues related to protecting the library - from the causes and the impact of crime to physical and legislative measures to prevent and control crime. The suggestions and recommendations offered by the authors vary. This is necessary since the kinds of problems that librarians face also vary tremendously.


Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
