Emergency Planning in Libraries and Archives

Emergency Planning in Libraries and Archives



We invite you to share your knowledge, expertise, and experiences at a symposium on emergency planning in Libraries and Archives hosted by the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law Library & the Cardozo Law Library to be held on Friday, July 10, 2020.

Proposals are welcome on any part of the emergency and disaster planning process, from policy creation to implementation. Libraries and archives have always been vulnerable to weather events that can strike at any time and in multiple forms such as fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, or pest and mold infestations. The ascending effects of global warming have the potential to increase these devastating occurrences and perhaps others unforeseen in the years to come.

This program strives to bring professionals together from all types of institutions and organizations to discuss these threats, how to prepare for them, and share lessons learned.

See the full call for proposals here. Submissions will be accepted through February 28, 2020 and can be submitted here.

Notifications will go out the end of March. Registration will open on April 6, 2020
