“Not-So-Impossible Choices: Determining Priorities for Collection Salvage” Webinar Recording Now Available
Identifying collections materials that are priorities for salvage is an important part of an organization’s emergency preparedness and response plan. Often in an emergency, we cannot save it all, and decisions will have to be made. But how do we go about choosing what items to save first? This can seem like a daunting task, but by establishing guidelines and planning, collection salvage priorities can become not-so-impossible choices. In Not-So-Impossible Choices: Determining Priorities for Collection Salvage, we looked at what makes collections most vulnerable to damage and how that can inform our parameters for salvage priorities.
