E.H. Butler Library Disaster Preparedness Plan. Revised 1991.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Coll. at Buffalo.
The plan presented in this revised manual is designed to minimize the potential for disaster in the E. H. Butler Library at the State University of New York College at Buffalo, and to minimize damage to materials in the event of a disaster. It contains emergency instructions, evacuation procedures, a disaster contact list, and information on salvage priorities, prevention, protection, response, recovery, rehabilitation, disaster team responsibilities, insurance, disaster supplies and equipment, and off-campus suppliers. It also includes procedures for handling damaged materials that have been tried and accepted by many conservators and institutions concerned with the safety and care of library materials. Appendixes include the floor plan for the first floor; the procedures for handling damaged books and records (i.e., air drying, dehumidification, freezer drying, vacuum thermal-drying, and vacuum freeze-drying); and a form for recording disaster recovery activities for the library collections.
