Every year Heritage Preservation encourages libraries, museums,
archives, historical societies, and preservation organizations to
set aside May 1, 2014 to participate in MayDay.  This year, make
sure your institution is prepared.  Any cultural institution
submitting a brief description of its 2014 MayDay plans or
accomplishments by May 31, 2014, will be entered in a drawing for
disaster supplies donated by Gaylord Brothers.

Heritage Preservation is now offering its award-winning Field Guide
to Emergency Response and Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel at
special MayDay prices through May 31, 2014.  David Carmicheal's book
Implementing the Incident Command System at the Institutional Level
is also discounted in celebration of MayDay.  Join us on Thursday,
April 17, at 1 p.m. (Eastern), on the Connecting to Collections
Online Community


when David will present a free, hour-long webinar--

   "The Supercharged Management System: Applying the Incident
    Command System in Cultural Repositories"

Polygon Group is the proud sponsor of MayDay 2014.

The Society of American Archivists (SAA) created the MayDay
initiative in 2006 and promoted the idea to its members and allied
organizations.  The following year, the Heritage Emergency National
Task Force and SAA expanded the concept to include all kinds of
collecting institutions and historic preservation interests.
