The Quick Audit Tool (QAT), 2nd edition - November 2019
This booklet 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 CERL's Security Network Working Group. It provides guidelines and useful tips. The booklet is available in two formats: as a booklet or on screen.

Special announcement (19 December 2019) - please note the following errata related to page 13 of the QAT.
- The title should be “Incident & Crisis Management”( not “Unusual & Crisis”).
- Question 95 should be “You have an agreed procedure to ensure the trace-ability of collection items moved during crisis management” (instead of “Collection security information is given to all new personnel and contractors as part of induction training”).
An updated version of the QAT will be made available early January 2020.
