Library Disaster Planning
Craven Community College
New Bern, North Carolina
August 9, 2002
9am-4pm with a one hour networking lunch.

Sponsored by The North Carolina Library Association Community and
Junior College Section and The North Carolina Preservation

Fires, hurricanes, tornados, floods, and other natural disasters
have destroyed many of our library treasures.  Facility disasters,
such as broken water pipes and failing HVAC systems, can be just as
devastating.  Libraries may also be targets of vandalism, terrorism,
and war.  A written, comprehensive disaster plan can limit the
extent of damages to valuable cultural, educational, and historical
collections.  This one day workshop is open to staff and volunteers
in libraries, archives, document repositories, historic sites,
museums, and conservation centers.  Graduate students in library
science, public history, and other cultural studies are also
welcome.  Topics include advocacy, team building, leadership, health
and safety, risk assessment, mitigation, collection priorities,
supplies, equipment, resources, immediate response, internal and
external communication, salvage methods, security, relocation of
services, cooperative agreements, insurance, grants, loans,
donations, fund raising, and assessment.  Participants will be
provided with an outline for creating and improving their own
institutional disaster plan.

Instructor: Robert James, Director of Library Services at Wake
