Disaster Response Q&A

ala.org/alcts

An ALCTS webinar.

Once a disaster strikes, the knee-jerk reaction is to rush in and save everything, but racing in without advance planning puts collections at risk of more damage and staff at risk of injury.

Attendees at this 2015 webinar submitted questions in advance through an online form and brought them to the webinar. Topics covered reflect the interests of participants and cover disaster response, including assessment and planning, working with vendors and volunteers, handling public relations, and managing collection salvage.

Originally presented on May 1, 2015 by Nancy Kraft.
