Written by experienced librarians who know because they’ve recovered from disasters, this important how-to helps librarians prepare for hurricanes, computer hackers, earthquakes, explosions, fires, floods, terrorist attacks, and other events too awesome to contemplate. Disaster Planning shows you how to:

* Create a working disaster team
* Establish a communications strategy
* Develop response plans
* Identify the proper relief/recovery agencies for your library

The companion CD-ROM is full of tools you can use, including: sample disaster plans, a downloadable and customizable template for creating your own disaster plan, links to disaster planning Web sites, a comprehensive directory of electronic resources and planning aids, and a disaster planning database with links to national agencies. No library, museum, or archive--small or large--should be without this preparedness guide.
