In February 2006, two librarians at the University of Minnesota’s Bio-Medical Library were asked to participate in a task force at the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health (SPH). The charge from the dean of SPH was to determine how the school could continue to deliver its educational programs in the event of a pandemic influenza outbreak. This paper will outline the work of the task force, discuss its recommendations, and offer ideas on how other librarians can work with their liaison areas to plan for a similar project.
