Disaster Plan

Recommendations for Action for the TCC Library Post Disaster

During a disaster (fire, tornado, intruder, etc.)

  • Follow disaster procedures provided by campus police during an active emergency situation.
  • If you are in a position of leadership during an active emergency, follow your directives from campus police.

Post disaster

  • Professional employees and staff should watch for messages about campus closings and safety alerts through the TCC Emergency Alerts system.
  • Contact your director or dean for immediate news from administration concerning work duties or campus relocation.
    • It is recommended that staff keep a print or alternate copy of their director’s contact information in the event that the online library directory is offline.
  • Deans and directors will delegate duties as appropriate for the situation.
  • Delegated librarians and staff  should maintain contact with campus police and share updates periodically at routine campus library meetings as needed.

Assessing collection damage and reestablishing services

  • Deans and directors may need to work with campus police and administration to gain clearance for librarians to work with the physical collections if the library is in a disaster zone.
  • Delegated librarians will determine the initial scope and damage of the collection, and assess priorities for restoration in the collection/ equipment.
  • Library will perform an inventory if needed based on condition and damage to collection.
  • Directors will delegate cleaning duties and collection development responsibilities.
  • The eRources manager will coordinate with IT and vendors to restore access to online materials.
