Survey about World Trade Center

The significance of the World Trade Center disaster is incalculable.
The media has stressed its impact on the nature of war, and on the
cultural climate of this country.  It will also have immense and
lasting effects on the social, economic, cultural and political life
of New York City, the greater New York-New Jersey region, and
beyond. Recognizing the long-term importance of this event and its
aftermath, a collaborative group of archives, libraries, museums,
and historical records programs have formed the World Trade Center
Documentation Task Force in an attempt to ensure that relevant
records are preserved and that the accounts, perspectives, and
actions of September 11, 2001 are carefully and fully documented.

We need your help in saving stories and experiences from that day
and the days that followed.  We've developed a short survey--just 14
questions, most just boxes you can check off.  But the resulting
information will be tremendously important.  You'll find it online
at: <URL:>

We want to hear from you if:

    You or your organization have files, reports, letters, or other
    kinds of information you created as part of your involvement
    with the World Trade Center disaster.  Those records may be an
    important part of the story of this event.   Please fill out the
    survey as a "creator" of records.

    You or your organizations are collecting records, artifacts,
    oral interviews, and other information about the World Trade
    Center disaster.  You might be doing this to create an exhibit,
    a memorial, a play or artwork, or just because you care about
    the issue.  Please fill out the survey as a "repository or
    collecting institution".

Please join us in ensuring that the documents and stories of this
event survive for the future. Please fill out our survey online at:

If you'd like to fill out the survey in hard copy, or have it
emailed to you instead of using the online version, please contact
us at dhs [at] mail__nysed__gov  or by phone at 718-923-4300.  For further
information on the Task Force, see our web site at:

We appreciate your assistance with this difficult, but important
part of our history.
