Unfortunately from time to time we need to remind everyone using the Library that there may be people around who want to leave with your belongings as well as a book. Please, when you’re using the Library:
- Don’t leave any of your belongings unattended – even if you’re surrounded by other people studying, they may not notice anything, and it takes a split second for someone to walk away with your things.
- Don’t sleep in the Library – as we’ve seen this week, this makes you an easy target for opportunistic thieves to help themselves.
- Keep any items of value, purses and bags out of sight or out of reach at all times.
- If you aren’t doing so already, make sure that you regularly back up the contents of your laptop, and consider buying (and using) a Kensington lock or similar that can secure your laptop.
