Description

Hosted by the University of South Florida Libraries, this conference on the role of libraries an archives in disaster preparedness and response speaks to one of the ways that libraries and archives are so important to the preservation of cultural items and information not only for the future, but in light of natural disasters that may occur to damage those culturally important items. Items are presented in the three official languages of the conference: English, Spanish, and French to represent the international involvement and cooperation of the conference. Along with American universities in the Gulf of Mexico region, the conference is headed by the ACIRIL (Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries). Sessions of the conference include topics such as standards for digitization that would allow information to be accessed by other institutions should the need arise, and how health and disaster preparedness information can be archived by libraries for use by the public. Using libraries and archives as ‘information centers’ for the public during a time of disaster can work in collaboration with government and organizational efforts to assist recovery.
