Posted by Lydia Egunnike


As summer rapidly approaches, the risk of damaging storms and bush fires greatly increase. So now is the time to ensure your organisation is disaster ready.

Incidents/Disasters are not always newsworthy - check out SLV's blog post on Preservation: caring for our collections

The Preservation team at State Library Victoria is part of the Preservation and Conservation Division and is responsible for a wide range of programs and activities designed to ensure the ongoing care, preservation and access of our collections.

The majority of the work undertaken in the Preservation Studio takes the form of collection re-housing projects. Other programs and activities managed by Preservation include Quarantine and Integrated Pest Management (IPM), Processing, Environmental Monitoring, Disaster Preparedness and Response, the preparation of collection material for digitisation and the maintenance of the Materials Store.

A risk management approach underpins all of the programs and activities undertaken in Preservation, with a focus on the minimisation of damage and deterioration to the state collection.

Disaster Preparedness, Response, and Recovery of Inkjet Printed Materials in Museum Collections

** Please excuse cross-postings**

IPI has recently completed the IMLS-funded project “Disaster Preparedness, Response, and Recovery for Inkjet Printed Materials in Museum Collections”. The results of the project are now available on the DP3 Project website under the new front-page heading “Flood” (http://dp3project.org/museumflood). This new section of the website starts with an overview to help readers understand the layout and location of specific types of information on the website. There are then separate pages that show how best to prepare collections before an adverse event to mitigate or minimize damage, how best to evaluate what has occurred in order to make the right decisions during salvage, and finally, guidance on how to manage the recovery and drying process to quickly get objects stabilized and safe from further harm.

IPI also has a new book that defines, describes, and illustrates all the types of damage that can occur to inkjet prints in water emergencies. Knowing in advance the types of damage that has occurred to these materials and why can help responders make the best decisions possible during their salvage efforts. The book can be viewed online at: http://www.imagepermanenceinstitute.org/atlaswaterdamage/
