RESILIENT Workshops: FREE Courses - Disaster Info Specialist

The RESILIENT Workshops will support and empower library staff and improve library resiliency in the preparation, response, and recovery phases of an emergency or disaster in their libraries or communities.

UPDATE - Free Courses from NLM

Time is running out to complete the Disaster Information Specialist Program in order to apply for certification from the MLA and receive reimbursement for the application fee. All courses that count towards the Basic Level Certification must be completed by Monday, April 19, 2021, 5 p.m. ET.

However, anyone can take the FREE courses from NLM. Besides the Disaster Information Specialist courses, there is a new course: In Case of Emergencies: Continuity of Operations Planning. Developed by Dan Wilson, the presenter from the fourth webinar in the RESILIENT series. Check out his presentation and COOP plan template.


The RESILIENT Workshops and related materials are organized and presented by Southeastern New York Library Resources Council with a Health Information Outreach Award from the National Library of Medicine during 2020/2021.
