Registration is open for Free NEDCCWebinar on Disaster Planning May 1st

by

Each year, archives, libraries, museums, and arts and historic preservation organizations set aside May 1 to participate in MayDay, an initiative to protect cultural heritage from disasters.  A few years ago the HRC hosted a PALMCOP led disaster recovery exercise.  We cannot do anything as elaborate as that for this year’s MayDay, but we can participate in a free webinar to show our willingness to do what needs to be done to be good stewards. 

I’ve already signed up for a refresher.  How about you?  Can you dedicate 2 hours on Tuesday, May 1st to learn more about how to prepare your institution to cope with a disaster?

Tuesday, May 1 – FREE in Honor of MayDay!! DISASTER PLANNING FREE WEBINAR from the Northeast Document Conservation Center of Andover, MA.  It’s a way that we can participate in the national effort to be prepared stewards

In addition, NEDCC runs a series of “Collections Care” webinars are designed for those who wish to learn more about the basic concepts of preserving cultural heritage and family collections.   Other online webinar courses from NEDCC cost $s. – Not a great many $s, but $s nonetheless:
