NLM Training: In Case of Emergencies: Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning

Posted by on November 14th, 2019 Posted in: Continuing Education, Emergency Preparedness and Response


The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce a new online course “In Case of Emergencies: Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning.” This asynchronous online course defines and describes COOP planning and why it is important for libraries to have a continuity plan. This course also provides a one-page COOP plan template with instructions that librarians or information specialists can use to develop their own plan.

This self-paced course fulfills one of the requirements of the Medical Library Association (MLA) Disaster Information Specialization, and provides four MLA continuing education (CE) credits.

This course was developed by Dan Wilson, Associate Director for Collections & Library Services / School of Nursing Librarian, Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, University of Virginia. Dan is the former coordinator for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) Emergency Preparedness Initiative.

Review the NLM Disaster Information Management (DIMRC) Training Course page to see a list of free online courses, and to learn how you can earn the MLA Disaster Information Specialist certificate.
