The world is not as safe as it used to be. Places that were considered safe (movie theaters, schools, churches, and libraries) have been violated; however, many of us do not give those incidents a second thought when we enter those facilities. Academic libraries are ripe for threats and attacks, be it from a gunman or a suspicious mold on a ceiling tile. This session will review how libraries are vulnerable to human, environmental, and facility threats and identify ways administrators and staff can possibly prevent the threats or be more prepared to handle them.
