The American Library Association compiled a list of disaster preparedness resources after the Heritage Health Index reported 78 percent of libraries do not have a disaster plan.

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
