Danielle Fraser, Library Conservator at the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) will be one of two keynote speakers to be featured on June 5 at the forty-eight annual conference of the Association of Caribbean University Research and Institutional libraries (ACURIL) which will be held in the Dominican Republic from June 3 to 7.
Fraser will be speaking on the topic “Disaster Preparedness Strategies for Assessing, Planning and Protecting Cultural Collections”. The following day on June 6, she will be hosting a workshop entitled, “When Disaster Strikes: Emergency Response and Salvage of Collection Damaged by Water”.
The ACURIL conference is the only one of its kind in the Caribbean. It has provided training and networking opportunities for librarians in the region since 1968. NALIS is therefore pleased to be represented in such a significant manner at a conference of this nature.
