    MAMA presents a workshop, sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council

    “Preparing for the Unexpected: Risk Assessment and Writing a Disaster Plan”

    Whether you are a library, archive, or museum, a disaster plan is an integral component of effective collections stewardship within your institution, but the preparation of a plan can be daunting. This workshop will be an overview of risk assessment as it pertains to collections-holding i central elements of emergency preparedness and explore ways to identify internal and external hazards in order to assess and mitigate the risks they pose. Then, participants will walk through the elements of a disaster plan, the process of updating the plan, and training and review methods.

The Center’s Imaging Services department digitizes many of these same collection materials, as well as photographic negatives and other transmissive media. NEDCC’s Audio Preservation department digitizes recordings on legacy audio media such as disc, cylinder, and magnetic and digital tape media using traditional and optical-scanning technologies. The Center has gained a reputation for professional conservation and digitization services and has treated some of the nation’s most significant cultural heritage materials. In addition, education and training have been vital to NEDCC’s mission since its inception.
