ALIA has been keeping track of how the flooding in both Queensland and Victoria are affecting libraries in the regions and have a compiled comprehensive lists of the Queensland libraries and Victorian libraries which have been affected. They also have a range of useful fact sheets dealing with disaster recovery and disaster planning as well as a few case studies. If your library doesn’t have a disaster response plan, now is the time to get started!
The effects of the flooding that is currently affecting our Queensland and Victorian colleagues are going to take some time to recover from. We wish all of the libraries affected a speedy recovery.
