The Northeast Document Conservation Center offers the free webinar: “A Matter of When, Not If: Preventing and Preparing for Disasters.” The webinar covers the basics of emergency prevention, planning, response and collections salvage. Check it out if you are just beginning to pay attention to disaster planning or if you need a refresher.
The webinar is accessed from the NEDCC website. Look for the link “Disaster Planning, Webinar Recording” on the home page.
Helpful hints for watching the webinar:
If you don’t have time for the entire two hour webinar, NEDCC’s recorded webinars can be stopped and restarted where they left off ONLY if you do not close out the program. If you minimize the screen and then bring it back up later it will keep your place, however, there may be a time-out feature in Adobe Connect after a certain period of inactivity. *Another option is to stop the recording and close the browser, the next time you open the session it will start from the beginning. *Finally, you can manually advance the talk if you remember where you ended your last viewing.
