Disaster Planning is the Hot Topic!

Join your colleagues on Tuesday, July 11, 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. for the hot, Hot Topic in St. Louis: Prepare for the Worst, Hope for the Best: Using a Library Disaster Plan Template to Prepare the Library's Disaster Plan. Disasters can range from plumbing leaks and broken water pipes to major catastrophes, such as hurricanes and fires. Good disaster planning can make it possible to get your library back into operation. Speaker, Jeanne Drewes, Chief, Binding and Collections Care, Library of Congress, and managing editor of Insurance and Risk Management for Libraries, will walk attendees through creating a library disaster plan using a template, which is available on the Educational Program Handout Materials Collection site. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring the template. Ms. Drewes will review existing disaster plans (limit 5 plans) while she is at AALL. If you would like Ms. Drewes to review your existing plan, bring it to the session.

Be sure to bring with you printed copies of the 3 documents for Program H-1 (available for printing/downloading here).

Nancy Johnson, Coordinator
