Incorporating Pandemic Preparedness in Institutional Emergency Plans

In a recent survey among collecting institutions, the vast majority did not have in place an emergency preparedness plan to address either pandemics or the widespread, extended closures that most organizations experienced throughout 2020. While health and human safety must always be forefront in our preparedness and response strategies, there are collections impacts to consider as well. This webinar offers practical tips and resources on updating emergency preparedness and response plans accordingly.
