This full-day workshop will cover disaster preparedness and response for cultural heritage collections. Planning exercises will help institutions prioritize next steps for creating or updating their plans. Risk assessment will be discussed and covered in an exercise, so participants can gain skills to assess and mitigate risks at their own institution. The workshop will include a hands-on portion where participants will stabilize wet collections materials, including books, papers, and audiovisual materials, and actively learn about appropriate drying methods to effectively salvage materials.
Location: Broward County Main Library

Library of Congress Classification (LCC) is used to classify works in many libraries, particularly academic libraries. It provides an “address” for each resource, as well as organizes resources primarily by subject. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the meaning of each part of an LCC call number, how to construct LCC Cutters, how to build basic and more complex LCC call numbers, and how to create LCC call numbers for fiction books. The instructor will primarily use Classification Web to find and build LCC call numbers, but other avenues for finding LC classification numbers will be discussed as well. This workshop is perfect for LCC novices, as well as those looking to refresh their LCC knowledge!
Location: Broward County Library, South Regional/Broward College Library
