Designed to provide beginning level training in emergency preparedness for librarians in medical libraries and information centers, the class consists of an informative and engaging PowerPoint presentation, interspersed with several interactive portions. Participants will learn how to conduct a basic risk assessment for their libraries, how to craft a basic emergency preparedness plan, strategies for continuing library services from off-site, and options for obtaining assistance, both web-based resources and via the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response structure. This is a 2-hour class.
