ALCTS webinar: Alliances for Disasters in Cultural Response & Recovery

Date: Wednesday, March 25, 2020

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

This is part one of a two-part series titled “Building Your Disaster
Networks”. These webinars are a follow up series of the ALCTS 2019
pre-conference session "Better Networking for Disasters." The series aims
to provide a bridge between librarians and archivists to a community of
heritage emergency responders to better coordinate in times of disasters.
This webinar series was meant to tie into the now postponed American
Institute for Conservation Annual Meeting session, "Alliances for
Resilience: Building a Robust Network for Disaster Response."

Webinar Description: It is essential for collecting institutions to be
prepared for both small emergencies and large disasters. As the effects of
climate change take hold, libraries, archives, and museums can expect to
feel the impact of more extreme weather events. Make sure you have the
resources and connections needed to prepare for and respond to emergencies
that affect your institution. Join presenter Katelin Lee to learn about
resources available through the American Institute for Conservation (AIC)
and the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC). Lee will discuss
networks and programs including the National Heritage Responders and
Alliance for Response, which provide assistance to collecting institutions
and models for improving preparedness and responding to emergencies.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to tap into networks to
promote emergency preparedness; access online resources on preparedness and
response; and develop local connections to other cultural institutions and
emergency management.

Who should attend?

Employees of libraries, archives, museums, and small to mid-sized cultural
