This one-day course is part of a new series of continued professional development courses in libraries preservation and collections care in collaboration with the British Library.

This intensive course focuses on preparing for disaster response and salvage. The course uses experience of responding to real incidents to demonstrate how planning can minimise the impact of emergencies in libraries and archives as well as outlining the practical steps to take when responding to situations. With reference to case studies, the course includes strategies for dealing with damage, an emergency decision-making exercise and a major incident desktop scenario. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key issues that a disaster plan needs to address
  • Give examples of the decisions to be made when responding to an incident
  • Source salvage equipment to build a disaster kit

The course takes place at the British Library in London. A working lunch in the Foyle Room is included.
