* vital records, risk management, and disaster prevention planning

An Ounce of Prevention: Integrated Disaster Planning for Archives, Libraries, and Record Centers, 2nd Ed.

Johanna Wellheiser and Jude Scott, with the assistance of John Barton

This second edition of the award-winning Ounce of Prevention from the Canadian Archives Foundation, published in cooperation with Scarecrow Press, is essential for larger archives, libraries, or record centers beginning or updating an institutional disaster plan.

The authors take the approach that disaster recovery planning must touch every department of an organization and that emergency response must be a carefully mapped strategy. This broad-based approach to integrated disaster planning explains each phase, with chapters covering planning for prevention, protection, preparedness, response, and recovery. The authors consider collections, records, facilities, and systems and include a chapter on post-disaster planning as well. The authors also cover Canadian federal and local assistance programs and list other sources for financial assistance.
