The Disaster Research Center, at the University of Delaware, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, and the Delaware Division of Libraries are sponsoring a summit on Tuesday, February 28th  2017 at Dover Downs.  The day-long event will bring together emergency planners, first responders, and librarians to learn about services that libraries have provided in recovery efforts in other states. Attendees will learn how to prepare for roles that Delaware libraries can play in supporting local potential disaster recovery (the disaster management cycle). The summit will be of interest to emergency planners, first responders, librarians, and organizations involved with disaster planning, response, and/or recovery.
