View Diary: Don't Buy Books From Crooks (48 comments)

  •  My wife works in a university library in (4+ / 0-)

    Technical Services, not in the public areas, thankfully. The school is in a dense urban area, and unsavory things happen from time to time.

    The library has the standard sensor gates at the exits. One evening a young man set off the alarm, and instead of allowing the staff to check his backpack, he pulled a gun. Of course, they let him go.

    The most valuable books are kept out of the stacks. Some of the books my wife obtains in her job function are extremely hard to get in the first place, and they may be impossible to replace.
