Another excellent resource for library managers who are preparing for the worst is Disaster Planning, a How-To-Do-It Manual for Librarians (Halsted, Jasper & Little 2005). This work contains a detailed step-by-step guide for creating a disaster preparation strategy, including a section on writing a disaster plan. It is almost impossible to imagine what ensues when disaster strikes; therefore, it's very important to imbue a newly-formed disaster team with a sense of the myriad of details it will be confronted with in an actual disaster and a grasp of the urgency it will face when the collection is under siege.


Like the M25 Consortium of Academic Libraries website, it offers a customizable disaster plan template as well as a Disaster Mitigation Web Site Kit which allows managers to build an online version of the disaster plan (allowing for offsite access and easy revision and propagation) (Halsted, Jasper & Little, p.xx). Team members should be encouraged to focus on specific areas pertinent to their designated roles and to become resident experts in these domains, perhaps authoring individual sections of the official disaster plan. This will enable an intelligent response to the many offers of assistance that will doubtlessly come in the case of disaster from a variety of sources, including overtures from those who wish simply to profit from the library's misfortune.
