CERL Summer School
Curators and security officers from libraries and archives are invited to spend a few days at a course where we aim to share knowledge on topics related to collection security.
The third Summer School of CERL is hosted by the University Library of Tartu, Estonia. The programme is developed in order to provide colleagues in charge of drawing up security policies with a concrete response to the problems they encounter on a daily basis, bearing in mind the global context within all of this is taking place. Our annual summer school aims to create a network of security officers and curators who continue to work together on best practice, who alert each other to potential areas of threat on the market, and who generally support each other in security matters (also through sharing policies, best practices and tools).
The Summer School consists of 3 types of activities
Presentations delivered by speakers from the CERL network (national and university libraries, archives) but also cultural governing bodies and associated bodies such as police departments for the protection Cultural Heritage and book trade
Visits to institutions that hold cultural heritage materials, where we focus on the themes addressed during the Summer School
Group discussions in order to share experiences, to determine and refine the concrete needs, to offer support and a space that gives the opportunity to step back
