the decisions involved in organizing recovery of water-damaged paper
collections. Tools for assessing damage, evaluating available
resources, and selecting recovery methods will be illustrated through
lectures, slides, and emergency scenarios. Scenarios will include
small- to mid-sized emergencies involving a variety of paper-based
collections. Priority setting, handling issues and drying methods and
procedures for recovering damaged paper collections will be reviewed.
Art on Paper
This workshop is intended for librarians, archivists, curators,
