Emergency Preparedness Opportunity
The severe winter storm that affected the Midwest gave libraries in the region a great opportunity to activate their service continuity plans. If you don’t have a plan, this is a good time to prepare for the next major service disruption. Resources to help you can be found on the Writing Your Disaster Plan page on the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit at: http://nnlm.gov/ep/disaster-plan-templates/
If you did have a plan, how did it go? Would you change anything? If so, this is a good time to make those changes.
