CERL Quick Audit Tool (QAT)

The Quick Audit Tool (QAT) (4th edition - February 2022) aims to raise awareness of a speedy way for any library/archive to see how their collection security policies and procedures compare against a baseline set by CERL institutions, both big and small, represented in the Security Working Group. Furthermore it provides guidelines and useful tips.

Two formats are available: to be printed as a booklet or to be consulted on screen. These Excel sheets help you to record your responses to the questions.

For an introduction to the tool, see this presentation by Mme Jacqueline Lambert, KB Brussels and Chairman of the Security Working Group.

The QAT Card Game and the QAT Library

The Security Network envisaged two supporting tools related to the QAT (see pp. 6-7 in the QAT booklet).

The first of these is the QAT Card Game. Based on 32 scenarios that you might be confronted with, this game aims to help you to make the link between the measures that the QAT questionnaire prompts you to take and the incidents/problems that they help to prevent and solve. It can be a great aid in helping you to get institutional buy-in and staff support for implementing rules and regulations. The Security Network's work on the QAT Card Game has now been completed, and CERL members may request access to the download page for the game and instructions for use.

The second supporting tool is the QAT Library (still under construction). The QAT Library will contain examples (forms, check-lists, procedures, etc.) and experiences related to security policies in place at CERL member institutions. The documents in the QAT Library will offer inspiration for other CERL members who are in the process of drafting or refining their own security policies.

Any documents related to your fight against theft and vandalism that you are willing to share with the CERL community can be sent to jacqueline.lambert@kbr.be.
