Libraries have changed with the times and so have their collections. Today, a library’s collection contains a wide variety of materials such as expensive CDs and DVDs, hard-to-replace reference volumes and popular books and magazines.
Without an effective security system in place, many libraries risk the problems associated with the temporary and permanent loss of materials. When items are unavailable, the patrons of your library must do without or go elsewhere. And, although the replacement cost may appear to be low, it is important to factor in the staff time to reorder, catalog and process these missing materials, which can double costs when taken into consideration.
