Washington DC Power Outage Summit - September 5, 2012

Library of Congress/James Madison Building/Mumford Room
Please join us for a morning of speakers and discussion about the impact of a power outage on library services and collections and the roles libraries and librarians can play in their communities or institutions in response to a major power outage. In addition, separate afternoon sessions will feature a workshop on building your library’s readiness and a disaster information specialization certificate class.
There is no charge to attend the morning or afternoon sessions. Seating is limited.
