Disaster Response: A Selected Annotated Bibliography

ALA Library Fact Sheet 10

Disasters strike every area of the country, and disasters do not spare libraries. Usually there is little or no warning, and the best defense is a plan for effective response.

This fact sheet is a selective resource for libraries of all sizes and types. It contains information on organizations that can provide disaster assistance; disaster recovery resources available online; and a bibliography of print resources (some with accompanying audiovisual CD-ROM or DVD).

More focused information is available on single-subject pages, including Preservation, Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Response, and Pandemic Preparedness.

Additional disaster plan resources and trauma recovery resources are continuously collected.

Whatever your community has been through, your library has been through. It is our job to remember and share.
