This week’s theme for National Preparedness Month is Check Your Coverage. Make sure your library or agency is covered in the event of a disaster. Power outages, floods, fires, etc., can damage your physical space and disrupt service to your patrons and clients. Do you have backup plans for your staff and your library if a disaster strikes close to home?
Lastly, remember to attend the upcoming webinar, Planning for Disaster: Partnerships Ensure Continuity of Operations, on Thursday, September 20, at 10:30am PDT. It will feature speakers from the National Library of Medicine’s Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC), along with Ann Holman from Darnall Medical Library, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Find login details on the Disaster Information Specialist Webinars page.
