Disaster Planning: Are You Prepared?
You never know when disaster will strike. It is important to be prepared and to plan for the unforeseen.

Learn from colleagues in public and academic libraries in Ohio as we share stories of lessons learned, familiarize yourself with different types of disaster planning resources, and identify key aspects of disaster planning development that you can implement today.
