In an effort to promote disaster preparedness around the southeast,
SOLINET, the Southeastern Library Network, is offering special
pricing for these two disaster classes. Support from the National
Endowment for the Humanities allows SOLINET to offer the classes at
only $50 per person.

This one-day class will provide the training necessary to plan,
organize, and execute a disaster plan and a salvage operation. In
addition to in-depth discussion on the disaster planning process,
there will be demonstrations of salvage techniques, including
air-drying books, packing out wet materials, separating and drying
manuscripts, rinsing books, and drying photographic materials.

Full descriptions and registration information for these classes are
