Introducing the LYRASIS Preservation Town Hall Series - FREE Series 
We are excited to announce a new forum for bringing together libraries and cultural heritage organizations to discuss methods for safeguarding and sustaining valuable collections. The LYRASIS Preservation Town Hall Series is hosted by LYRASIS and supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and gives professionals an opportunity to learn about and share best practices, firsthand experience and helpful tools and resources from experts. All sessions will be FREE for participants.

The series will kick off with the Cooperative Community Emergency Response and Recovery Town Hall, which will be held twice - first on October 8 at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and then again on December 6 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, GA (with a live webcast of the GA event for remote participants). These sessions will focus on how local planning can lead to successful regional disaster response and recovery efforts. There are many examples throughout the United States of cultural heritage organizations working with emergency management agencies to create community-wide networks that support joint planning, response and recovery. These partnerships also foster emergency readiness amongst the individual members of the network. Regardless of whether the disaster affects just one building or multiple states, these networks have been successful. Yet, every network is unique. Individual communities have developed their networks in a variety of ways to address political, organizational, and geographic issues.

Featured speakers for the October 8 Town Hall at Temple University include:
Lori Foley, Vice President for Emergency Programs, Heritage Preservation
Michele Stricker, Deputy Director, New Jersey State Library
Alix Bentrud, Preservation Services Librarian, LYRASIS
Representative of Delaware Disaster Assistance Team (DDAT)  
Featured speakers for the December 6 Town Hall at Georgia Tech include:
Lori Foley, Vice President for Emergency Programs, Heritage Preservation
Christine Wiseman, Head, Digital Services Unit, Robert W. Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center and Heritage Emergency Response Alliance - Atlanta, Steering Committee
Alix Bentrud, Preservation Services Librarian, LYRASIS
