Co-Constructing Disaster Response: Researchers and Practitioners Collaborating for Resilience in Small and Rural Libraries
Sunday, January 26, 2020
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Location: Room 122-B
Researchers from Florida and Texas will report their experiences co-constructing narratives of disaster planning, response, and recovery in the wake of the last 5 years’ regional hurricanes. This session, rich in verbatim data, photos, and other documentation, will detail the process that researchers used to engage as partners in understanding disaster experiences and critically evaluating public librarians’ roles in community resiliency. The session will also include opportunities for audience members to share their own experiences through storytelling and discussion.
