Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, NEDCC and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) partnered in 2004 to create dPlan, a free online program to help institutions write comprehensive disaster plans. dPlan provides a template that allows museums, libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions of all sizes to develop a customized disaster preparedness and response plan.
dPlan can serve the needs of small institutions without in-house preservation staff, as well as library and museum systems that need to develop separate but related plans for multiple locations, and state agencies that need to structure training programs on disaster planning.
Each institution’s password-protected plan is stored on a secure server. All data from the current dPlan version will be migrated to the upgraded dPlan in fall 2018. (Read about the upgraded features below!)

dPlan will be upgraded in fall 2018 with 21st-century usability and even more features, including:
