Alan Haley, Preservation Specialist from the Library of Congress will review the basic principles of emergency management, as an effective way to update our own emergency plans. Haley will also highlight the steps to create a template for emergencies if you have yet to develop one; learn about the ALA Adopt a Library Program, and much more!
