KNOW & GO: WORKING WITH PATRONS AND THE COMMUNITY AFTER A DISASTERJan 23,2013 - Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Time: 2:30pm - 3:30pm (ET) Location: LIVE and ONLINE Presenter: Gina Minks, Imaging and Preservation Service Manager Course Description In the last few months libraries and other cultural institutions across the country have had to deal with the aftermath of earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and wild fires. After tragic events like these, people in the community look to the library to find information and guidance to help them begin to recover and/or rebuild. What do libraries need to do in order to be prepared to be a community resource? How can libraries best serve the needs of their patrons? This Know & Go will focus on how libraries can help patrons connect with community resources as well helping patrons preserve their own documents and personal memories after a disaster.
