Celebrate ALA Preservation Week: Learn about Disaster Preparedness

Thursday, April 21, 2011

FREE ALCTS webinar for Preservation Week!

On Tuesday, April 26, 2011, Nancy E Kraft, UI Libraries Preservation Librarian will present a webinar, “Accidents Happen: Protecting & Saving Family Treasures” at 2pm Eastern, 1pm Central, noon Mountain, and 11am Pacific Time. It’s an hour in length.

Accidents and disasters happen. When it does are you prepared? Are your family treasures stored safely in your home or elsewhere? How do you save your photos when they’ve been submerged in flood water? What do you do if your books smell mildewy? What if your basement floods or worse? Kraft will provide tips and tools for checking out possible hazards around the house, dealing with mold and salvaging keepsakes, documenting damage for insurance purposes, and keeping your family safe.

These webinars are developed for the general audience. You could show them as a program at your institution. If you sign up, it’s yours to show at a later date!

This is a complimentary webinar presented as part of the Preservation Week events. To register, visit the GoToWebinar site: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/168682080
