Highlighting a great salvage/recovery site: NEDCC
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) has many very helpful resources available to help rescue paper-based collections. (Their own disaster plan template, dPlan, is featured on their pages.) What I found especially pertinent, however, were the many preservation leaflets–there’s a “Click to view Preservation Leaflets” link in the left menu bar on every page. The leaflets deal with every situation imaginable and are well-written and succinct. NEDCC also offers a 24/7 “hotline” number to call with salvage questions. I’m adding them to our blog’s list of sources for future reference!
