ABSTRACT

Seat at the Table: Working with the Disaster Workforce   [open html - 19KB]

"This course prepares librarians on how to work with first responders, including public safety, fire/rescue, public health department, local health care facilities, and emergency planners. Libraries have a critical role to play in disaster preparation and recovery, but they need a seat at the table with the right people, and they need to have something to offer. During and after a disaster are not the times for libraries to learn how to work with local, state, and federal responders. The time to build and develop these relationships is before a disaster strikes. It is critical to have a seat at the table before, during, and after a disaster. This course will cover the basics of initiating and developing relationships with all relevant local, state, and federal officials and agencies, as well as with emergency responders. This self-paced course fulfills one of the requirements of the Medical Library Association (MLA) Disaster Information Specialization, Advanced Level. Students will earn four MLA Continuing Education (CE) credits."
