The Oregon Historical Society Research Library held a MayDay Disaster Response Workshop workshop on May 1, 2008, at the Oregon Historical Society's Madison Room in Portland and sponsored by the Disaster Response Group of the Portland Area Library System and the Oregon Library Association Preservation Roundtable.
