Security strips

From: Ellen McCrady <whenry>
Date: Wednesday, June 17, 1992
I called up Diane Kresh, who has been heading the security project at
the Library of Congress, to ask if the rumor was true, that they would
even be putting Knogo security strips in the rare books there, and she
said instantly, NO.  Apparently it never entered their minds to do such
a thing.  The rare book collections are included in the security plan,
but security was already so good that there are few additional steps
left to take.
Diane Kresh, by the way, will be transferred soon to the Preservation
Directorate as Preservation Resources Officer, responsible for its
personnel affairs; planning and coordination of the Directorate's fiscal
planning, tracking, and procurement activities; and automation
applications.  Her background includes experience in collections
management, and she is currently the Acting Director of Public Service
and Collections Management.

I forgot to ask her about the "non-damaging" adhesive used in the
Knogo strips, but Sarah Richards of the National Library of
Medicine provided information on it in an April 6 communication
in this DistList.  She provided the address of Knogo April 20: 

    Knogo North America
    350 Wireless Blvd.,
    Long Island, NY  11788
