Free Webinar: Disaster-Related Awardee Project Reports

National Network of Libraries of Medicine Presents

Disaster-Related Awardee Project Reports (Lunch with the RML session)

Date / Time: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 / 11 am – Noon (ET)

Where: https://webmeeting.nih.gov/techtime/

Presenters:

Bridget Quinn-Carey, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Queens Public Library
Michele Stricker, Associate Director, Library Support Services, New Jersey State Library

Summary: Bridget will provide a report for the Queens Library Mobile Health Information Classroom: Superstorm Sandy had a devastating effect on the residents of Far Rockaway. Two Queens public libraries were severely damaged and will be under repair for some time. Mobile units were being used. This award supports technology purchases for Queens Library to offer health information services within the mobile units.

Michele will provide a synopsis of two NN/LM MAR funded events that took place following Superstorm Sandy. The primary goal of these events was to enhance emergency preparedness and response capabilities so the libraries can engage in disaster response in their communities. As a result, a cohort of public libraries proceeded to receive additional NN/LM MAR funding to partner with emergency planners in order to increase awareness of the value of a public library before, during, and after a disaster.
