This is a guide for librarians who need to make an immediate response to a disaster or to formulate a plan and take preventive measures. The more common disasters of fires, storms, floods, construction accidents, power failures, and earthquakes which cause water damage, fire damage, or biopredation are the main consideration here. The manual discusses disaster prevention, from evaluating and upgrading the physical plant to assessment of collections, emphasizing storage. A step-by-step outline of what to include in a disaster plan covers personnel training, the availability of outside expertise and a checklist of sources and suppplies. The final chapters focus on disaster recovery and beyond, including insurance, treatment of damaged materials in various formats, and a discussion of new building ideas from a disaster prevention/recovery perspective.

From The New Yorker:

...it behooves each and every public library board and director to make sure that a plan to deal with a disaster when it occurs is in place. Disaster Planning and Recovery...is a good place to begin...

Review:

...highly commendable...for any library that hasn't yet completed a disaster plan. -- Booklist
