Overview

Matthews (information and library management, University of Central England, UK) and Feather (library and information studies, Loughborough University, UK) present guidance on various aspects of disaster management. Academics and practitioners from around the world draw on firsthand experience to explain the importance and scope of disaster management planning and what can be done before, during, and after incidents. They outline different phases of a disaster control plan, from prevention to recovery, then look at recovery from fire, flood, and war, touching on disaster's effects on library employees and users as well as technical and logistical problems.
