This presentation will focus on disasters such as the discovery of mold in archives storage areas, mitigating the mold using limited resources, reviewing and updating policies and procedures, best practices for creating effective disaster response manuals, and how each institution developed policies to protect their collections and respond to disasters. Panelists will discuss their experiences and how creating response plans has changed the outcome of disasters. How has your institution responded to the threat of disaster and what challenges have you encountered? The presenters encourage the audience to share their experiences.
