Storing and protecting information will always remain librarian’s main job. The birth of ICT (Information communication technology) has given new shape to this job. Earlier librarians were following traditional ways to secure their resources. The ICT has revolutionised not only the ways for creating and accessing of information, but also it has provided various technologies using which the library can keep its major asset i.e. Resources (print and electronic) secure from theft and misuse. This article will describe some of the major technologies adopted by modern libraries for the protection of their resources (print and online) like RFID technology, CCTV, EM tapes and biometrics technology , etc.
