(4) What steps, if any, are being taken to ensure that adequate security is maintained to minimise the loss of the library’s resources.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) 19 items are deemed as unrecoverable (lost)

(2) The total cost of these items is $181.45

(3) There are 83 items that are considered overdue at the present time. However, the majority of these items will be returned.

The library is secured each weeknight from 5.00pm until 8.30am and for the whole of the weekend.

Materials are only lent to Members of the Legislative Assembly and their staff and permanent officers of the ACT Government.

If materials are not returned by the due date then overdue notices are sent out as a reminder. These notices are usually successful in ensuring the return of outstanding material.
