We conducted a 1 1/2 day workshop entitled "Disaster Recovery".  It was
lead by Toby Murray (library disaster planning, preparedness and
recovery specialist and preservation officer at the University of Tulsa
Libraries).  The main focus of this workshop was to provide hands-on
recovery techniques for paper- and film-based library materials damaged
by water and fire. It included discussion of disaster preparedness and
how to write and maintain a disaster plan.  There were 25
participants--a comfortable number for handling the hands-on portion.
The hands-on segment was received and complimented very well.  In
addition to handling the damaged (wet, muddy, swollen, etc.) materials,
the participants had a chance to operate fire extinguishers.  We will
repeat this workshop in 1995.
