Preparing, Protecting, Preserving your Family Treasures
is a new website sponsored by ALA Carnegie-Whitney Award and the
Library of Congress Preservation Directorate at


This website provides simple instructions, as well as links to more
comprehensive information for preparing, protecting, preserving many
types of family treasures. Using this information, you will have the
means to prepare ahead of time, to protect everyday, and if need be
to preserve your family treasures after a disaster. Proper care,
handling and storage of your treasures will help to ensure that they
are available for generations to come. No one likes to think about
disasters, whether natural or man made, but thinking ahead and
preparing, together with knowledge about first steps, can save those
family treasures from ruin.

Please feel free to link to the site.  Video clips will be added
soon. Comments or suggestions  for additions or improvements are
also welcome.
