Myers, Marcia J., Comp.
This report presents the results of a survey that gathered information from Association of Research Libraries (ARL) members on insuring library collections and buildings. Data are presented on kinds of insurance and coverage, valuation, special insurance on electronic data, sprinkler systems, losses, and insurance problems. A copy of the survey questionnaire with a tally of the responses to individual questions is included. The remainder of the kit consists of copies of planning documents, insurance policies, memos, and reports from seven ARL libraries: those of the University of California System, University of California (Riverside), University of Cincinnati, Indiana University, Ohio State University, University of Southern California, and the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Materials from these institutions address insurance coverage, collection valuation, and losses and claims. Four selected readings are listed. (MES)
