Responsibility for loss of books, Other Management

Responsibility for Loss of Books:

In a majority of libraries of the western countries, librarians are not held responsible for books losses, but many organisations in India continue to hold librarians responsible for  book losses. The situation has fortunately, changed now for the better, mainly due to the efforts of professional bodies like library associations.  It is generally accepted that a loss of three books per thousand books circulated as a normal loss which may be written off.
