Tara Kennedy is the Preservation Services Librarian at Yale University Library.


If your institution is affected by a large-scale disaster, you may very well rely on the services of a disaster recovery company to help get back on your feet. What companies are out there and what services do they offer? How do you vet companies to make sure that they are using responsible techniques in handling and recovering your impacted collections?

Join National Heritage Responder Tara Kennedy to learn some basic principles for salvaging different types of collection materials and which critical questions to ask when entering into (or renewing) contracts with recovery companies. Questions? Bring your questions for Tara to answer live!

All program participants who fill out a survey will be eligible to win a new edition of the “Field Guide to Emergency Response” (valued at $25.00).

Unlike past programs, this session will be held via Facebook Live. Log on to AIC’s Facebook page to view the program:
