This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Disaster Planning for Special Libraries contains a guide for developing and maintaining disaster plans for small special libraries and related work units. This volume serves as a reference resource, not only for people who have never considered the disaster planning process, but also for experienced planners interested in a variety of approaches to different aspects of planning. The author discusses the role of the special librarian in the planning process and considers the relationship between special libraries and their host organizations. He emphasizes the importance of coordinating a special library’s plan with any in place for its host organization, and encourages librarians to demonstrate their planning skills for organization-wide benefits. Early chapters summarize the initial phases of the planning process, which include preparedness and response measures. Subsequent chapters cover the assessment of damage to special library facilities and assets, the implications of declaring a disaster, the development of strategic alliances with key suppliers, orientation and training, succession planning, operational resumption, the normalization of library operations, and auditing a disaster plan. The concluding chapter discusses concerns that special librarians might have with regard to the future and its risks. Appendices include examples of a risk assessment and analysis and a risk mitigation program, a strike and protest plan, an emergency equipment inspection and audit report, a pandemic management program, and disaster response manager’s kit. • Presents essential information in an accessible manner • Considers the disaster-related needs and experiences of special library personnel • Discusses a variety of risks to special libraries in different kinds of physical locations • Offers different approaches to a broad range of disaster planning topics in special libraries • Provides examples of essential planning documentation
