RDA Group Therapy (Regency C)
We are spending large quantities of time working our way through RDA training materials. Much of this has been webinar based with limited opportunity for discussion. It is frequently useful in developing my understanding of RDA to talk specific issues around, examining them from different angles. I would like to provide an opportunity for other serials librarians/catalogers to have this kind of conversation.

Disaster Preparedness (Regency B)
All (hopefully) libraries have a "disaster plan" somewhere. Has it been reviewed recently? One thing that Hurricane Sandy taught all of us is that we aren't as prepared as we could be. In libraries, we have many irreplaceable items. Sometimes we don't have any time to do more than get ourselves to safety, but if you had 3 hours or more warning before a disaster, would you know what you want to save? Do you have a "mutual aid" agreement with another library in place? Can you function if you do not have electricity?
Discussion Group Leader: Sharon Purtee, University of Cincinnati
