Course Information

Will your disaster plan work in a real disaster situation? It's better to find answers now than after a disaster has occurred! Attend this scenario-based and collaboration workshop to help heritage institutions – libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, etc. – improve disaster preparedness and response for collections.

This workshop will:
  • Help you assess your vulnerabilities
  • Test your plan using a scenario table top exercise
  • Explore how collaborations can help you respond to a disaster
  • Build a shared vision for regional disaster preparedness

Who should attend:

When possible, send two to three participants from your institution to work together on disaster preparedness activities:
  • Staff member(s) responsible for emergency preparedness
  • Administrator and/or manager responsible for the building/collection
  • Key members of the emergency/disaster team responsible for decision-making

Requirements for attendance:
  • A written disaster plan (draft okay) that includes collections response/recovery
  • A letter of institutional commitment to explore collaboration to optimize preparedness
  • A simple vulnerability assessment (distributed 3 weeks before workshop)
