New Frontiers in Emergency Preparedness
Friday, January 14, 2005
1-5 p m

    This half-day symposium describes an evolution in emergency
    preparedness and response that librarians should definitely know
    about. Specifically, it spotlights new directions such as the
    Alliance for Response, an initiative of Heritage Preservation
    fostering groundbreaking dialogue between cultural leaders and
    first-responders, and dPlan, an online emergency preparedness
    tool funded by IMLS and jointly developed by NEDCC and MBLC. The
    potential role of the federal government in protecting cultural
    heritage materials is also addressed.

    This symposium is designed for librarians and other cultural
    heritage leaders responsible for emergency preparedness planning
    as well as response and recovery.

    Speakers: Gregor Trinkaus-Randall, Massachusetts Board of
    Library Commissioners; Jane Long, Heritage Preservation; Bernard
    Margolis, Boston Public Library; G. Fred Vanderschmidt, FEMA;
    Lori Foley, Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC)
    Arthur Beale, MFA.
