Disaster Planning, Preparedness, and Recovery is an AASLH Technical Leaflet. AASLH Technical Leaflets are brief, practical guides on how to do history. Technical Leaflet #234 by April McCauley and Bethany L. Hawkins contains lists of resources related to specific types of disasters with brief abstracts describing each resource entry. The threats museum face are numerous -from flooding to fires to chemical spills to pest infestation. Proper planning for disasters may not prevent these events but it will help museums and historical institutions in the recovery process from an unfortunate occurrence. It also contains a list of online resources that organizations can reference when writing a disaster or emergency preparedness plan.
