Description: From Library Journal
If your library doesn't already have a disaster plan, this book will give you enough adrenaline to start writing one. The author (Disaster Prevention and Response for Special Libraries, Professional Reading, LJ 5/1/95) is a specialist in preservation and disaster response, serving all types of cultural institutions, corporations, businesses, and disaster response companies. The unique presentation in this distinctive guide starts right off with a disaster. Kahn assumes that you may have an out-of-date plan or none at all. From the plan you move to recovery and a review of procedures used during the disaster in order to change and/or update your plan to reflect the actual steps followed during the disaster. Remaining chapters deal with prevention, planning, and response and recovery procedures. There are how-to-do-it instructions for materials in many formats, and case studies completing each chapter illustrate the information discussed. Dealing with computers and various storage formats is covered in detail, e.g., you may back up your hard drive every Friday onto tapes or discs, but do you store them off-site or keep them near your computer? CDs and CD-ROMs and what little is known about saving the information on this relatively new technology is discussed. Appendixes contain checklists, forms, and contacts. The excellent, current bibliography is arranged by format. Every library should buy a copy of this and keep it right next to the disaster plan.
