The 10-Step Approach to Service Continuity Planning is designed to provide beginning level training in emergency preparedness for librarians in medical libraries and information centers. The class consists of a 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.
