Academic libraries in crisis situations: roles, responses, and lessons learned in providing crisis-related information and services

Stephanie Ganic Braunstein, Jenna Ryan and Will Hires

Abstract:

Although all major libraries in a community can potentially serve as sources of assistance during a crisis, academic libraries in particular have much to offer both to their institutions and to their communities. Disaster situations can be ameliorated by the expertise of academic librarians with their special capacity for information organization and management and service. Thus, academic librarians can and should take the initiative to get the library involved early in response efforts and at a high priority.
