As many of you know we realized yesterday afternoon that the iPad on the right hand side of the ring while facing the circulation desk has been stolen. The entire case, iPad, and security cable is missing. I have alerted Campus Security to this but needless to say it is disturbing and disappointing. We really need to be vigilant about observing our patrons and what they are up to and we need to be vigilant about searching peoples’ bags. There was a security strip on the iPad that should have set off the gate. The iPads are obviously very tempting so please make sure to be monitoring them closely on your shifts.
UPDATE: The iPad case by the MFA desk has been damaged in a theft attempt and is no longer secure. I have taken the iPad out of it for safe keeping and have moved the stand; however, we have a THIEF in the library! Please be extra vigilant about watching people and call security if anything seems suspicious! Better safe than sorry. Also, if you notice something is missing alert management immediately, do not assume someone on staff has moved it.
