Disaster Preparedness Manual.
Michael, Douglas O.
Prepared for use by the staff of a community college library, this manual describes the natural, building, and human hazards which can result in disaster in a library and outlines a set of disaster prevention measures and salvage procedures. A list of salvage priorities, floor plans for all three levels of Bourke Memorial Library, and staff duties in case of disaster are given. The library's insurance coverage is described, and protocols for the salvage process are enumerated in detail. The procedure for elevator evacuation is also presented. The three appendices to the manual list sources of assistance, the names of local individuals who can help in the event of a disaster, and suppliers of materials necessary for a disaster clean-up operation. A 37-item bibliography of materials on libraries and disasters is also provided. (JL)
