ACRL announces the publication of a new title, Emergency Response Planning in College Libraries, number 40 in the ACRL CLIP Notes series. Compiled by Marcia Thomas and Anke Voss, and edited by Thomas, Emergency Response Planning in College Libraries provides information on disaster and emergency response planning and management to assist librarians in the creation and updates of emergency response plans.
The title updates Emergency Planning and Management in College Libraries (CLIP Note #17) with responses to a revised survey and the compilation of newer plans and policies that reflect recent events such as Hurricane Katrina and Sept. 11. Included documents contain procedures for coping with a wide range of potential emergencies, from power failures to armed intruders, and a bibliography points to articles, books and professionally developed Web sites containing extensive documentation on current best practices.
