Abstract: In September 2017, Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricanes Irma and María, causing great devastation throughout the Archipelago. The repercussions of this atmospheric event have made recovery in libraries, archives and museums slow and difficult. In addition, it has required the review of the practices implemented to date to efficiently safeguard the resources for which they are responsible and ensure their continuous access. Such is the case of the Library of the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus, which lacked a program dedicated to the care of collections and disaster management before the event. Although they suffered the impact of the hurricanes, thanks to a rapid response, they managed to mitigate the damage quickly and secure emergency funds to train personnel and stabilize the impacted collections. In addition, this experience gave way to recognizing a new post-Maria scenario, and a new project arises in the institution in order to improve the capacity for prevention, mitigation, preparation, response and recovery. In order to inspire other colleagues in the face of the continuing threat from natural disasters in our region, this poster will share the strategies implemented for the establishment of a preservation program, with emphasis on: the formation of a work team with the collaboration and mentoring of experts, staff training, climate control and monitoring activities, the process of evaluation and re-storage of affected resources, and the development of an emergency plan for collections.
