Title: Disaster Planning for Collections
Summary: We cannot always prevent incidents from impacting our collections, but we can engage in disaster planning. Institutions that have engaged in disaster planning activities in advance of a disaster generally fare better than those who have done no disaster planning work at all. This presentation will focus on the three phases of disaster planning: Information gathering and assessment of resources, implementation, and ongoing maintenance.
