Preparing your collection for a disaster could greatly increase what survives. Northeast Document Conservation Center recommends to first prepare an emergency preparedness plan. This will allow your staff to respond quickly before, during and after a disaster with explict instructions that will provide the best practices for preparing and salvaging your collections. For assistance in preparing a disaster plan please refer to our Disaster Plan section.
Your collection has gotten wet now what do you do? If your collection has been affected by water or moisture please refer to our Wet Recovery page.
