​The risk of disasters, whether big or small, can continually keep collections in jeopardy. LYRASIS can help you to improve an existing disaster plan, or develop a new plan for your organization. 

Determining the risks to your building, staff and patrons, and collections, we help you develop a plan which will help to keep people and collections safe.  We can review your current plan, or provide templates and recommendations as you develop a brand new All-Hazards Plan that addresses natural and human-caused disasters.

Both Tom and Katy were ALWAYS available to communicate, and were willing to do so using any format possible - in person, phone, email,
