  • About the Authors

Emergency Response Planning in College Libraries (CLIP Note #40) provides information on disaster and emergency response planning and management to assist librarians in the creation and updates of emergency response plans. This publication updates Emergency Planning and Management in College Libraries (CLIP Note # 17), with responses to a new survey and the compilation of newer plans and policies that reflect our awareness of more recent events such as Hurricane Katrina and September 11. Selected documents contain procedures for coping with a wide range of potential emergencies, from power failures to armed intruders, and a bibliography points not only to articles and books but also professionally developed web sites containing extensive documentation on current best practices.

This book is suitable for community college, college, and university libraries as well as a pedagogical tool for library and information schools.
