Protecting Our Materials
Submitted by jrogers on Thu, 05/10/2012 - 3:52pm
Western History/Genealogy Department, have been working on creating a disaster plan for the department for over a year. After we created guides for our department, we decided to encourage colleagues throughout our library system to adapt the Pocket Guide template (courtesy of Alliance for Response) to their departments and branches. We also designed and created colorful, spiral bound Emergency Quick Reference Guides for staff at the Central building and modified a version for use at all the library's branches. All of this work helps us in preparing for emergencies or disasters which may arise. Protecting our materials and staff is of paramount importance not only for the library, but for the city as well.
