Disasters All Around

Aside from my current academic interest in the history of the book, I continue to work in the field of disaster response and recovery. I heard several interesting talks on the topic that are more historical in nature. They provide much food for thought as I consider how to revise my first ALA publication on Disaster Response and Recovery for Libraries and Archives. There is so much to think about before I sit down to write it. The new revision is due out in early 2011, which only seems like a long time from now. I really want to rewrite the book, so there will probably be more examples from history to sprinkle into the advice on planning. Any suggestions you have are always welcome.
