Emergency Toolkit

An essential new book from the Handbook’s publishers, Facet Publishing, on a subject which is the very heart of special collections librarianship: Emergency planning and response for libraries, archives and museums, by Emma Dadson.   To quote my comments on the Facet website, this book is …

“A  realistic and practical primer on all aspects of emergency planning.  Emma Dadson is the perfect person to write it, because of her in-depth experience of helping all kinds of organisations in all kinds of emergency, from floods to power outages.  There is plenty of useful advice on emergency roles, salvage procedures, service continuity, and forming effective relationships within the parent organisation.  The book’s value is enhanced by candid case studies in which those involved share lessons learned”.

Highly recommended for all special collections and indeed library people.
