High Density Storage - Emergency Plans

  • 1.  High Density Storage - Emergency Plans

    Hi All, 

    At the University of Minnesota, we're starting to update/develop collections emergency plans for our high density storage facilities (both existing and the one that's currently under construction).   We'd be really interested to see example documents from your institutions (at least the parts that don't contain sensitive information).  We'd also be interested to hear any key takeaways, lessons learned, etc from your emergency planning process, or actual emergency response.  

    Thanks in advance for any wisdom you're able to share! 

    Best, Mary
