Loss of Books - STOCK VERIFICATION 

Loss of Books Loss of books is inevitable in  open  access libraries  wherein the users have the freedom to browse through books, though a closed access system is also not immune from loss since theft may take place through staff which has access to the stock. The reasons for stealing or mutilating of books may be as follows:   

  • Some are regular thieves and stealing is their inherent character. Despite necessary precautions it may be difficult to control this type of thieves; 
  • Poor vigilance may tempt some people to steal. The reader may find stealing an easy way out compared to borrowing; 
  • Very strict rules and regulations regarding the use of books may also induce people to steal. For example, certain materials are not lent out for home reading and a reader may be disinclined to refer the same within the library premises for various reasons. It is very common in academic libraries to  find issues of periodicals with pages missing, because of this reason. 
  • Some book lovers have a pervert possessive  attitude towards books and may steal them. 
  • Lack of proper security policy in libraries. 
  • Loss of BooksWrong assumption that theft is only through library users and staff is free from such trait.
