Risk Assessment for Cultural Heritage Institutions - Webinar (08/18/20)

 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 second session will specifically cover assessing risks that can lead to disasters affecting collections at cultural heritage institutions. Participants will learn ways institutions can mitigate those risks to reduce their chance of happening and/or limit their impact if they do happen.

Risks covered will include fire, water, natural disasters, mold, and pests. Participants will learn how to assess which risks would most likely impact their institution to focus their mitigation and planning efforts on events that would have the greatest impact on their collections.

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