Emergency Preparedness and Response


The Preservation Office has created a Collections Emergency Plan in order to respond to any incident or disaster affecting library collections. The Plan provides detailed information on preparedness for and response to water, fire, or mold emergencies affecting Library collections.

A downloadable Quick Response Guide for Library staff is available below. Preservation has also created an Emergency Supply Kit, which includes supplies such as water diverters, absorbent pads, plastic sheeting, and other materials often needed in a collections emergency.
