New page for NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit
The NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Plan’s online toolkit has a new page as of today. The Pandemic Planning page is located here: http://nnlm.gov/ep/pandemic-planning/.
The page contains links to the CDC’s H1N1 site as well as to several Word documents that contain information about pandemic planning, some service continuity issues that may need to be addressed, and a sample of a table-top exercise that can be used to assist in pandemic planning.
According to Susan Yowell, Project Assistant, NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Plan,”The current focus of the content of the page is on academic health sciences libraries, but we believe the content can be adapted to suit the needs of other types of libraries or institutions. We will continue to develop the page, adding relevant content as it emerges.”
