Disaster and Emergency Preparedness for Libraries: Home

Disaster and Emergency Preparedness

Disasters strike every area of the country, and disasters do not spare libraries. Usually there is little or no warning and the best defense is a plan for effective defense. 

This Disaster and Emergency Preparedness LibGuide looks at how libraries and library staff can prepare for disasters within their own buildings and within their communities.  Each page focuses on a different aspect of Disaster and Emergency Preparedness from preparation to recovery, preservation, and federal agencies that assist during disasters.
