The Medical Library Association (MLA) is providing a distance education opportunity via webcast for members on Wednesday, November 12, from 1-3 PM Central time, in which presenters will speak about their experiences in dealing with disasters. Dan Wilson will also contribute information about NN/LM’s activities in emergency preparedness. The class is entitled “Survival Tips and Stories: Expanding the Library’s Services in Times of Disaster.” Click here for the page on the MLA website that gives information. Speakers Ethel Madden, Julie Page and Marty Thompson all have fascinating stories to tell about disasters they have experienced first-hand, and will share many lessons-learned and recommendations for all of us to consider in helping our libraries to be prepared for emergencies. Don’t miss it!
