ACRL is pleased to announce the publication of the Comprehensive Guide to Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Recovery. Authors Frances Wilkinson, Linda Lewis and Nancy Dennis provide practical and experience-based approaches on preparing for a disaster by creating a plan, responding to an emergency and the intricacies of recovering from a disaster.
The book also features seven compelling, reality-based case studies from six university libraries that recovered from earthquake, fire, flood or hurricane damage. The clearly organized text contains numerous photographs and a comprehensive appendix featuring an extensive bibliography and glossary, a model disaster preparedness plan and a model RFP for selecting a disaster recovery vendor, as well as useful Internet sites and print resources. The work provides sound explanations and advice on every aspect of disaster preparedness, response and recovery in libraries.
