It includes sample checklists and templates, tools and solutions for promoting collaborative services to enable digital library continuity as well as case studies and lessons learned from successful efforts in recovering from a library technology disaster.

Designing fault-tolerant systems in a cloud computing environment
7 key components of a communications plan
Evaluating free web and social media applications as communication tools during disasters
7 lessons the University of Iowa took from its 2008 flood
How cultural institutions in New York and New Jersey responded to Hurricane Sandy
