Putting it all Together

Emergency plans come in various formats and sizes, depending on the size of the institution, the different threats the institution could face, and the type of collection. This module presents a basic outline of typical elements found in the emergency plans of institutions across the country. As you complete your plan you should also focus on ways to make your emergency plan a "living document" for your institution. By becoming a living document, your emergency plan will take its place as one of the guiding documents of your institution.
