LIBER Library Collection Security Conference Tuesday, 20 May 2008 at
the British Library Conference Centre, London. Hosted by The British
Library and sponsored by LIBER - Association of European Research

The security of library collections is a critical factor in
successful collection stewardship. Recent collection security
incidents from major libraries around the world prove that now is a
vital time to communicate new ideas and experiences in safeguarding
collections. Library collections are there to be used, but how best
to keep them safe?

The aim of this conference is to share information on market
intelligence, technology watch, trend analysis and research into
collection security. It will provide a forum to share experience in
managing risks to library collections, investigating incidents and
preventing loss. International confirmed speakers include:

    Karl Schornagel
    Inspector General, Library of Congress

    Jacqueline Sanson
    Director, Bibliotheque nationale de France

    Erland Kolding Nielsen
    Director, National Library Denmark

    Ton Cremers
    Museum Security Network, The Netherlands

We hope you will able to join us for what will be a wide-ranging and
challenging conference.
