    Just been flicking through some of your older entries – you don’t seem to have posted much recently – and found this one.
    I was invited to a Disaster management session a while back to discuss our disaster plan and start thinking about modifying/building on it. Since then I haven’t heard anything about it – I should really contact the organisers and see what is going on.
    Did you find the session helpful? What sort of things did it cover?

    Hi Katharine,

    Yes, I’ve not been updating as much in the past month or so as I’m trying to get the final draft of my portfolio done and have made a first attempt at my statement, which I’m finding rather tricky!

    Anyway, this session was an in-house one as a number of my colleagues are in the process of developing a disaster plan and they were feeding back their progress to date. The Information Centre includes the Museum and Records Management, as well as the Library, so we have a fair amount of items, artifacts and records that need to be considered. Work has been ongoing within each section to identify key resources that would need to be saved/replaced, and then to prioritise these across the Centre as a whole. We looked at the floor maps that had been produced (the Museum collection in particular is in numerous areas) and then went on a walk around the building to check these maps in situ. Plans have been produced to cope with 2 levels of disaster e.g. minor flood in one part of building vs major incident completely shutting building and affecting all areas.

    It was interesting and useful – lots of work for those involved though!
