Developing a Disaster Plan
(Web-Based Training)

Wednesday, February 18, 2004, with mandatory follow-up sessions on
March 10, 2004 and March 31, 2004.

To prevent unnecessary loss of materials, institutions need
knowledgeable staff and written plans for dealing with emergency
situations so that fewer disasters occur and damage is minimized.
Disaster planning requires the support and commitment of staff from
many departments, including facilities and fiscal affairs. Plan
preparation is more successful and effective when undertaken by a
committee with staff representatives from across the institution.

Taught in 3 two-hour sessions over the course of six weeks, this
class guides participants through the development of a written
disaster plan. This web-based workshop is designed to support the
work of an institution's disaster planning committee. Homework
assignments will require input and support from a variety of staff

The modules cover: Establishment of a planning structure,
information gathering, including risk assessment and resource list
development, setting recovery priorities, an overview of recovery
procedures, plan development, and working with disaster recovery

This workshop is designed for staff members responsible for
organizing, writing, and implementing an institution-wide disaster
preparedness plan in academic, public, or special libraries;
archives; or historical societies. Participants are invited to
submit their completed plans for review.

Partial funding for this workshop has been provided by a grant from
the National Endowment for the Humanities, Division of Preservation
and Access.

Cost is $135 SOLINET members ($125 early bird, $160 late
registration), $185 Non-members ($175 early bird, $210 late
