Fleischer Presents at ALAO Conference

Vic Fleischer, University Archivist & Head of Archives and Special Collections, presented “What Else Can Happen?: Disaster Planning and Recovery in the Age of COVID” last week, October 2021, at the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Conference.   Fleischer highlighted the flood that occurred in Archives and Special Collections last March and stressed the importance of having a disaster response and recovery plan in place.  He also discussed lessons learned from the flood, which was exacerbated by the pandemic, and the importance of addressing a pandemic and its associated issues in disaster plans. 

Nicely done, Vic!
