The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, a division of the American Library Association, provides a clearinghouse of emergency preparedness and disaster recovery resources.

Each resource listed on this page is accompanied with a description of how the resource is helpful.

This webpage provides links to websites of organizations that can provide guidance and information about emergency planning, links to downloads of disaster planning documents, and links related to staff training for emergency response.

Most of the information focuses specifically on archives and libraries.

Some of these resources can be adapted to general policies for any historic site and organizations holding archival collections will find these resources particularly helpful.
