    Hosted by the 2018 International Conference Indigenous Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM 2018)

    Cultural heritage held by archives, libraries, and museums is at the heart of tribal identity and must be protected from loss.  This session presents the best practices for preventing losses from fire, theft (internal and external), armed intrusion and other potential risks.  The information presented includes policies and procedures provided by the Department of Homeland Security, FBI's Art Crimes Team, and other agencies.  Attendees will gain extensive information to assist in formulating a viable protection program.
