How much loss of books in a year is permissible in the library?


Posted by Mr. Prasanta Kumar Deka on May 21, 2010 at 13:23 in News and Discussion View News

Here last(2009-10 )stock verification report in my library i have found 139books lost from my library.we are following open access system in library and most of the student are higher secondary and degree level.: When the average attendance in the library is about 200 to 300 daily, then it is quite obvious that some student may do such type of misdeeds. But can you suggest me how i can convicts my authority about the matter. Is there any rule about library book lost. There is no security system but I have inform authority about it . I would like to quote Dr Ranganathan, the father of Library Science in India that It is better to loose a book than to loose a reader Like Share Twitter Views: 428 Reply to This

Permalink Reply by Dr. Badan Barman on May 21, 2010 at 16:33 Dear sir, In a search over the web I found the following details from different sources. A quote from Govt. of India General Financial Rules: Rule no. 116(2) (ii): "Loss of three volumes per one thousand volumes issued/consulted in a year may be taken as reasonable provided such loss can not be attributed to dishonesty or negligence on the part of Librarian. Loss of a book of the value exceeding Rs.200 (Rupees Two hundred) and the books of special nature and rarity shall invariably be investigated and consequential action taken. All such losses will however be written off only by a competent authority." As per General Financial rules 2005 Govt. of India, loss of books up to 5 books per thousand books issued/consulted can be considered reasonable. Swamy's Handbook' Pg. 399 (1999 edition) under the heading "Special Procedure for Library Books". Loss of 3 books/1000 issues cannot be attributed to dishonesty or negligence of the librarian. The Directorate of the Technical education in the Letter No FAR/14353 Dated 31/12/1974 has stated that a conference of Librarians of the colleges in Karnataka University was held on May 8 1973. In this a resolution passed. It is recommended that a loss of 4 books for every 1000 books used (those which are lent out and those which are consulted in the premises of the library) be

regarded normal loss and should be straight away writes off. Order No.FD 25 TCL 74: Bangalore, Dated 18/JUNE/1974 by order and in the name of the government of Karnataka. The UGC (India) Library Committee forcefully recommends to write off an inevitable loss @ 2 for every 1000 books issued. However in an open access library, annual loss of 3 volumes for every 1000 issues should be considered as a normal loss in normal circumstances as recommended by Dr. Ranganathan. REF: Mittal, R. L. Library Administration: Theory and Practice, Fifth ed., 1987, p357-359. Reply

For more clarifications you can access this web page also: http://finmin.nic.in/the_ministry/dept_expenditure/GFRS/GFR2005.pdf As far as security is concerned electronic surveillance systems consisting of RFID tags, smart cards, electric and sensor based gates do solve the purpose. CCTV may also be installed for monitoring. Reply
