The Comprehensive Guide to Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Recovery provides a tool kit for librarians and serves as an essential resource for medium to large libraries. The authors offer readers practical approaches on preparing for a disaster by creating a plan, responding to an emergency, and the intricacies of recovering from a disaster. An accompanying section features seven compelling, reality-based case studies from six university libraries that recovered from earthquake, fire, flood, or hurricane damage. The clearly organized text is further strengthened by photographs and a comprehensive appendix that includes an extensive bibliography, glossary, model disaster preparedness plan, a model RFP for selecting a disaster recovery vendor, as well as useful Internet sites and print resources. The book is filled with sound explanations and advice on every aspect of disaster preparedness, response, and recovery in libraries.
