C101 – Weathering the Virtual Library

Monday, April 7, 2014
10:00 AM – 10:45 AM
, Virtual Library Coordinator, Pioneer Library System

On May 19, 20, and 31, 2013, tornadoes tore through central Oklahoma, tearing a path of destruction through urban and rural Cleveland, McClain, and Pottawatomie counties. This three county area is also the service area of the Pioneer Library System. The PLS physical buildings escaped the path of the storms by a matter of blocks. But the PLS services, such as electricity and internet, were impacted for several days after the storms hit. This session looks at the virtual library's immediate response to the storms, steps taken in the following days, and finally what steps were implemented to address future severe weather the system could face.With these lessons and those of your colleagues, spend some time discussing disruption and disaster plans!
