Introduction to Disaster Preparedness - Webinar (07/23/20)

 NEFLIN is proud to partner with LYRASIS to bring you a series of four webinars on Disaster Preparedness! 

You do not have to enroll in all four, but we highly recommend that you do so. Seating is limited to 25 in these webinars, so get your place now!


This first session will provide an overview of disaster planning, why it’s important for cultural heritage institutions, and beginning steps any organization can take to prepare for a disaster of any size.

The session will orient individuals new to disaster preparedness to steps they can take at their institution to better prepare for a disaster, and it can help people with experience in disaster planning identify ways they could update their plan.

NOTE: Only those who pre-register for this webinar will have access to the archived recording.
