Ropes divide off the New Zealand Collection from the remainder of the reference collection and a sign tells borrowers why. The City Librarian, Ian Malcolm, estimates that 3-4% of the collection is disappearing off the shelves. This means that between 500-600 volumes, worth about $10,000, are being stolen each year. For a full report see Evening Standard April 7 1982, p 36.
