You have heard it before: expect the unexpected. As a library director or building manager, it’s crucial to be adequately prepared for natural disasters, medical emergencies, and building damage. In the midst of running a busy library, these details can fall through the cracks. This short course will help you identify the information your library needs to have on hand, develop a simple disaster plan, and devise a strategy to keep the plan current.
Identify crucial points of contact for minor and major disaster response
Proactively identify weak points in your building
Develop a plan for responding to various building repair issues and collection salvaging
Expectations: You will create a list of contact information your library needs in the event of a disaster.
Instructors: Meredith Lowe and Anna Palmer (both MA-LIS) are part of the continuing education team at the School of Library and Information Studies, UW-Madison. Fortunately, they’ve never experienced a major disaster, but look forward to helping others plan for the unexpected.
