How to report stolen manuscripts

The Professional Autograph Dealers Association (PADA) has established a system for reporting stolen or missing manuscripts to its member- ship, thus enabling libraries and archives to alert auto- graph dealers to possibly il- legal transactions. The system has two parts: an alert net- work for reporting newly dis- covered losses and a data- base to register missing manuscript materials. To report a newly dis- covered loss, call (888) 338-4338 toll-free and PADA will immediately notify its membership by fax or phone. Provide as much information as possible in the report: a detailed description of the manuscript stolen; the date and circum- stances of the loss; the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the contact person at the institution; and any law enforcement officers involved. To register an older loss in the data- base, mail a detailed description of the manu- script, with any of the information listed above, to Catherine Barnes, head of PADA’s Security Committee, P.O. Box 30117, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Please do not use the toll-free number to report older losses. For the present, the in- formation collected will be available only to PADA members, but in the future it may be offered to nonmembers on a subscription ba- sis. This service is offered free-of-charge to re- porting institutions.
