Library Disaster Preparedness & Response: Home

Putting a plan in place before a disaster strikes, and what to do when disaster does strike

ALA Library Fact Sheet 10

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 response. This LibGuide offers resources for libraries of all sizes and types. It contains information on organizations that can provide disaster assistance; disaster recovery resources available online; and a bibliography of print resources.

Emergency Response/Disaster Assistance Phone Numbers Available 24/7
