Disaster Salvage and Response:
A Special Issue of The WAAC Newsletter

In response to recent events, the Western Association for Art
Conservation (WAAC), has devoted the September 2005 (vol 27, no 3)
issue of the WAAC Newsletter to articles on salvage and response. In
order to facilitate recovery efforts WAAC is making this issue
available online for a limited time (until January 15, 2006). See


This issue includes information on health and safety for salvage
operations, a reprint with a new introduction of Betty Walsh's
"Salvage Operations for Water Damaged Archival Collections" and the
"Salvage at a Glance" chart (in the print version this is printed on
waterproof synthetic paper), a basic primer on mold, as well as a
collection of new information and reprinted materials from a number
of sources.

This online version will be available until January 15, 2006, but
print copies are available at any time. Back issues of the WAAC
Newsletter may be purchased for $10.00 per copy, shipping included,
by sending a check payable to WAAC to:

Tania Collas
WAAC Treasurer
