Disaster Planning for Cultural Institutions is an AASLH Technical Leaflet. AASLH Technical Leaflets are brief, practical guides on how to do history. Technical Leaflet #183 by Beth C. Lindblom and Karen Motylewski provides a guide of how to create a disaster plan with helpful insights as to who should write it and its format. Disaster planning can help institutions sustain minimal damage in the wake of natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fire, and other unfortunate crises. Lindblom and Motylewski overview steps for emergency preparation including how to identify risks, take measures to decrease those risks, write a plan that is integrated into the institution's daily operations, and collect the resources necessary to carry out the plan.
