IFLA (2012)
  • Win Shih, University of Southern California

Located in earthquake-predisposed geography, University of Southern California (USC) Libraries have long made every conscious and strategic decision to fortify disaster preparedness as well as to diversify their IT facilities and operations in order to minimize risk and potential impact of a large-scale temblor. In this paper, we will discuss USC Library’s cloud-centric IT infrastructure and holistic business continuity model; how it fits into our IT operations; and how we mediate vulnerabilities and minimize risk.
