Report on September 11, 2001

From: Celine Guisset <cguisset>
Date: Friday, June 28, 2002
Cataclysm and Challenge, a report on the destruction of cultural
heritage as a result of the September 11 attacks, has just been
published by Heritage Preservation.  The 26-page report offers the
first comprehensive study of what was lost, and also covers findings
from a survey of collecting institutions in Lower Manhattan.  The
survey found that basic emergency response procedures worked well to
protect collections in museums and libraries, but that there are
significant gaps in preparedness that need to be addressed. The full
text of the report is available as a PDF file at
