How consortium offices can contribute to disaster recovery

Abstract

Libraries need assistance after disasters. Often municipal authorities are not able to quickly respond to a library’s call for postdisaster assistance. Library consortium offices can render valuable postdisaster service to their member libraries. For example, consortium offices can provide emergency transportation and communications, offer temporary storage of replacement IT, and handle public relations until the situation is stable.
