Running head: LEXINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY Lexington Public Library Surveillance Policy Dominic Norwood Walden University 1 LEXINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY 2 Lexington Public Library The Lexington Public Library comprises of six library branches that serve the city of Lexington and the surrounding central Kentucky counties. The branches are The Village Branch, Beaumont, Eastside, Northside, Tate's Creek branches and the largest of them all- the downtown Lexington Central library. Through its services, the library meets the needs of more than 300,000 members of the public of all ages. Over the years the literature material has been updated, and currently, it has over 560,000 items which are a combination of a wide variety of books, audiobooks, e-books, magazines, movies, music and much more (Lexington Public Library, 2017). The facility managed to serve roughly 2 million visitors last year, and at the same time maintains an online presence that saw it get over 8 million visitors. Additionally, the library uses a mobile application that was used over 6 million of its members. Despite the great increase and availability of a wide array of digital material, print formats were still preferred taking about 59 percent, with the DVDs preferred at 22 percent, while the audiobooks and CDs took up 9 and 4 percent respectively (Lexington Public Library, 2016). The organization's vision is lifetime connection and dedication to the community while the mission is in the connection, stimulation of ideas and changing of people's lives. The main values are excellence the in the type of service that it offers, equality in the way they treat both visitors and their staff. It also focuses on integrity which is aimed at maintaining the trust of the community that it serves, stewardship and finally passion. The strategic goals are in six main areas of access, education, stewardship, culture, space, and inclusivity (Lexington Public Library, 2017). LEXINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY 3 Video surveillance policy The policy that would benefit from a detailed analysis is done on video surveillance. Video surveillance has many benefits to any organization from a small retail shop to facilities that are massive. Some of the advantages of video surveillance are that it helps in enhancement of security through deterrence, it also helps the law enforcement in the apprehension of criminals, and it can also serve the purpose of exonerating someone that as wrongfully charged and so much more (Randall and Newell, 2014). At Lexington library, video surveillance is used. However, such usage requires a policy to guide how it is operated and also enforcement of various rules that revolve around such practices. The main purpose of the policy is in maintaining the safety and security of the environment and in extension the customers and staff. The video equipment has been stationed at various locations within the Lexington library facilities and is always running. At the entrance to the main building, clear signs have been fixed to warn the public of the security camera that is in operation with and around the premises. The surveillance system helps Lexington Library be able to keep the environment secure, the organization's assets, the property, the customers, and the staff members. There are operation procedures in place that guide the usage of the footage in line with the existing institutional law and those of the local authorities. Research Question a) What are the benefits of having a video surveillance policy to Lexington Library systems? What improvements or changes can be made to the video surveillance policy of Lexington Library systems to keep to the organization’s strategic goals as well as address the privacy and legal concerns when it comes to video surveillance? LEXINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY 4 Evaluation design and validity and reliability The evaluation design strategy will be in the form of qualitative and quantitative analysis of available information on the matter of surveillance. That will take the form of a thorough analysis of documents; digital content such emails that may be available in the public domain or by requesting for them in line with the freedom of information laws. Additionally, various stakeholders will also use semi-structured interviews when carrying out the analysis. The individuals that will be engaged in the interviews will be the once that were a part of in the decision making the process at various stages of the creation of the policy, installation of the equipment, their management, and any other activities related to the surveillance process. By using the qualitative and quantitative strategies stated above will help in gathering information will provide more detailed information on the library systems and the surveillance policies that may be in place, and the reasons behind the changes that have been implemented and also those that have led to policy changes in the past. The qualitative techniques such as interviews will provide direct feedback and also allow for the interviewer to gauge the feedback, get more information that would have otherwise have been left out; they are also able to notice any non-verbal responses that can only be possible through a face to face analysis (Johnson, 2014). By studying material and documents, the researchers will be in a position of gathering more information and also in the greater level of detail. By interviewing the stakeholders, I will be able to get first-hand information relating to various issues about the surveillance policy and the strategies that have been applied.

The Lexington Public Library comprises of six library branches that serve the city of
Lexington and the surrounding central Kentucky counties. The branches are The Village Branch,
Beaumont, East side, North side, Tate's Creek branches and the largest of them all- the
downtown Lexington Central library. Through the services it offers, the library meets the needs
of more than 300,000 members of the public regardless of their age bracket or preference. There
are variety of books for toddlers, children, youths and the elderly that cover a broad range of
topics ranging from books that educate children on alphabets to arithmetic, novels, journals ETC.
Over the years the literature material on the portals and the library has been updated.
The update has foreseen the number of items found within the library amount to over
560,000 items which are a combination of a wide variety of hardcopy books, audio books which
are books that have narrators read the book out for their audiences, e-books which are books
prepared and presented in soft copy, magazines, journals, movies, music and much more
(Lexington Public Library, 2017). The facility had managed to serve roughly 2 million visitors in
the past year, while at the same time maintaining an online presence that saw it get over 8
million visitors. Additionally, the library uses a mobile application that has since been used by
over 6 million of its members. Despite the great increase and availability of a wide array of
digital material, print formats were still preferred taking about 59 percent, with the DVDs
preferred at 22 percent, while the audio books and CDs took up 9 and 4 percent respectively

delivery of service that it offers, equality in the manner in which they treat both their visitors and
their staff both in person and in the online platform. It also focuses on integrity which is aimed at
maintaining the trust of the community that it serves as well as assuring the community about the
institution’s ethical obligation, stewardship and passion in the delivery of service. The
institution’s strategic goals are found in six main areas of access, education, stewardship, culture,
space, and inclusivity (Lexington Public Library, 2017).
Video surveillance policy
The installation of a video surveillance system can greatly benefit an institution,
organization or company. At the same time it may pose a number of problems within the same
institution. In certain aspects it may lead to conflicts with certain employees needing to look into
the documentary evidence made by video surveillance to affirm a wrong that was committed
against them. It may create unnecessary expectations as well on the overall performance of video
surveillance systems. Policies to regulate these issues therefore become essential. The written
policies act as a guiding tool to communities and people in general on the purpose and use of the
video surveillance systems (Wang, 2013).
The policies apply in equal measure to every person within an institution or organization.
The policy helps in the assurance to people on the sole purposes of the video surveillance as well
as listing the tasks it can undertake. The individual in charge of the surveillance system acquires
guidelines from the policy on the type and management of that particular equipment. A video
surveillance policy should address the purpose of the technical equipment, the geographical or
topographical region that could best be utilized and where to avoid using them, it should include
places of monitoring, how to start a record and at what point it is advisable to stop or generally
how long the surveillance should run for (Cristiani et al, 2013).

The policy should also include detailed information on the individuals supposedly
responsible for management of the surveillance system; who gains access to the video and to
what extent and intended purpose. It should also include directives on how to install and utilize
furtive cameras as well as the procedures that are supposed to be followed for one to gain access
to the videos collected from surveillance after putting a request for them. In the least the policy
should be in a position to explain the storage and archiving of the recordings attained therein
incase of security incidents. A video surveillance system may pose legal issues if not well
presented thus presenting loopholes upon which a person may sue upon. For this reason it is
prudent to review the written policy time to time by the organization’s cou...
