Join the Disaster Information Management Research Center's Specialized Information Services Division for a webinar addressing disaster readiness in libraries. Dan Wilson, Coordinator, National Network of Libraries of Medicine Emergency Preparedness & Response Initiative, will present about his experiences advocating for greater disaster readiness in our nation's libraries. In addition, he will talk about creating a disaster readiness culture at the library he works at (University of Virginia Health Sciences Library) and his role in establishing a Virtual Operations Support Team at the Charlottesville/Albemarle County Community Emergency Response Team. Wilson has been the Coordinator of the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Initiative since the summer of 2007. As coordinator, he advocates library disaster readiness by facilitating summit meetings for librarians and emergency planners. He is currently working with State Library of New Jersey and the State Library of Pennsylvania on improving disaster readiness in their public libraries, and is in the planning stages of a major initiative with the State Library of North Carolina set for this spring.
