Disaster Preparedness in the 21st Century: Preserving Library Collections and Services Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N264
Description :

In an age of drastic weather events and increasing dependence on digital collections and Internet connections for practically all library functions, we should give some thought to how we will function in the event of a long-term (more than a few days) power outage. This program will first evaluate the possibility of such an event in order to justify taking the time to prepare for it, then examine practical ways to prepare and cope, including considering the feasibility of alternate power sources, making sure digital collections are backed up locally when possible (instead of or in addition to "in the cloud"), and preserving a core physical collection. The program will also recommend resources for funding and further reading.
