Security requirements
Pages 5

The role of security has been defined in the commercial world as the ‘safeguarding of a company’s assets’. This definition is very much in sympathy with the idea that ‘preservation of the collection’ is central to conservation policy. These similarities are important since they emphasise the need to recognise that solutions to problems in one discipline may be used to cure deficiencies in the other. That being so, it will be appropriate to deal with security towards the end of the forward plan so as to take account of changes planned under other headings.
