                   Disaster Contingency Planning for Archives,
                   Libraries and Record Centers
Date Published     1985
Abstract           Published in conjunction with a recent
                   symposium on disaster preparedness for
                   information managers, March 7-8, 1985 this
                   handbook is intended to heighten awareness
                   about and to assist archives, libraries and
                   record centers in disaster contingency
                   planning.  It discusses methods of preventing
                   disasters and, should one occur, ways of
                   containing and minimizing it through advance
                   planning. It outlines action to be taken when
                   disaster strikes, salvage operations, the
                   rehabilitation of salvaged materials,
                   fumigation and sterilization, and the
                   completion of the recovery operation.
                   Extensive appendices list human resources,
                   suppliers of emergency facilities, services,
                   and materials, etc. [Abstractor's note: This
                   is the first handbook specifically intended
                   for the Canadian situation.]

Title              The Corning flood: Museum under water
Abstract           Concentrates on the salvage of the Corning
                   Museum library materials that were water
                   soaked and covered with debris by the 1972
                   Hurricane Agnes flood. There are also two
                   sections on restoration of the glass
                   collections. Research was undertaken on the
                   best means to dry out and sterilize the
                   library collections, which included books and
                   periodicals, photographs and negatives,
                   archives, audiotapes, and rare volumes. The
                   thousands of items had been frozen as the
                   museum was cleaned up; they were dried out by
                   traditional interleaving,by dielectric drying,
                   and by freeze-thaw vacuum drying.
                   Sterilization was in a vacuum chamber with
                   ethylene oxide.

Abstract           Introduction covers general care, handling,
                   and storage techniques. Introductory chapter
                   presents a history of the preservation
                   movement, discusses the effects of library
                   design on its contents, and emphasizes the
                   need for establishing a disaster prevention
                   and preparedness plan. Individual chapters
                   treat paper, books and bindings, photographs,
                   slides, microforms, motion picture film,
                   videotape, videodiscs, sound recordings, and
                   the storage of computerized information. The
                   chapters on non-traditional materials focus on
                   the technology of the formats: the production
                   process,chemical deterioration, optimal
                   storage conditions, and specific care and
                   handling needs.

Abstract           Arson damage to the collections of the Los
                   Angeles Public Library, April 29, 1986, is
                   reported. Volunteers, under the direction of
                   Document Reprocessors of San Francisco,
                   removed a million salvageable volumes from the
                   premises in a little over three days (80
                   hours), wet books being placed at once in
                   commercial freezers and dry books stored at
                   the Los Angeles Convention Center. Firemen
                   responding to the blaze took precautions of
                   covering stack ranges with plastic sheeting to
                   protect whatever materials they could from
                   water cascading down from  the upper floors.
                   Volunteer assistance has been available from
                   local corporations and government agencies.
                   The library was not equipped with sprinkler
                   systems and the alarm system was not directly
                   tied into an emergency number system.

Page               5
Abstract           Museum or archive disaster planning is
                   discussed: first, the plan should be detailed
                   to as great an extent as possible to avoid the
                   likelihood of detrimental actions under stress
                   of an emergency,; second, the disaster
                   recovery plan should be designed for results,
                   rather than concern with the source of the
                   disaster; third, a recovery plan must be built
                   around a strong recovery team (or teams, in
                   large organizations.)

Abstract           The article describes emergency measures used
                   in dealing with water damaged documents and
                   albumin prints, including getting documents
                   frozen immediately to minimize running of ink,
                   and problems encountered in later transfer to
                   freeze-dry facilities. Albumin prints were not
                   frozen since this would damage them.
                   Materials, equipment and sources found to be
                   useful are described. They used disaster
                   planning information from the Library Science
                   Courses in Conservation of Library Materials
                   given by the Northeast Document Conservation

                   postflood handling and  vaccuum freeze drying
                   of these objects.

Abstract           Regional disaster preparedness differs from
                   cooperative disaster peparedness because a
                   systematic attempt is made to involve all
                   institutions of a certain type (not just
                   libraries) in cooperative disaster
                   preparedness. The article cites benefits
                   including the increased feasibility of setting
                   up joint training sessions in salvage
                   procedures. The author cites Our Memory at

                   chartered institutions holding research
                   resources. 2) Designate and assist at least
                   one institution in each region to provide
                   emergency, state supported assistance to
                   others.

Abstract           The first objective of a museum security
                   program is to protect the visiting public and
                   museum staff from harm or injury. The second
                   objective is to protect the collections from
                   vandalism, theft, fire, natural disaster, and
                   man-made disasters. Museum staff should be
                   alerted to potentially hazardous conditions.
                   Prevention, detection, and control procedures
                   for fire and theft should be well-established
                   and the possibility of acts of terrorism
                   cannot be ignored.

Abstract           From the flood of florence in 1966 came the
                   awareness that the so-called limp vellum
                   binding structures had not inflicted as much
                   damage to their text blocks as had other
                   binding structures. Limp vellum binding may
                   satisfy many  conservation principles, for
                   example as a nonadhesive structure and
                   transferrable to stiff board.

Abstract           In December 1981, the Economics Department
                   Building at the University of Michigan
                   suffered an arsonist's attack. The fire was
                   extinguished with huge quantities of water
                   which flooded the building. A salvage team was
                   faced with wet, dirty books and paper
                   deposited layer upon layer in the basement.
                   Because there was so much material, a decision
                   was made to throw out replaceable items, make
                   copies where possible, and restore as few
                   items as possible. However, due to the
                   imminent collapse of the building, all
                   materials were removed and vacuum dried before
                   any sorting and discarding took place. See
                   also AATA 15-1235 for  more information on
                   disaster planning.

Abstract           Museums should not be sited in vulnerable
                   positions (e.g., in the local flood plain) and
                   should be built to the same construction
                   standards as hospitals. All museums, including
                   those which are well sited, need comprehensive
                   disaster plans which consider both the
                   building and its contents. Feilden provides a
                   list of six administrative measures which form
                   the basis of such a plan. An excerpt from the
                   report prepared by the Director of the Corning
                   Museum of Glass after the 1972 flood specifies
                   several disaster-related administrative
                   concerns.

                   successful in these investigations.

Abstract           The simulation of flooding gave measurable
                   results for preparing standard flood-damaged
                   materials. Amounts of water absorbed by books
                   loosely or closely packed, or with coated or
                   uncoated paper are compared. Freeze-thaw
                   vacuum, interleave-air and solvent extraction
                   processes are said to offer great potential to
                   dry coated and uncoated paper books after they
                   have been wetted and frozen. Further
                   experimentation is recommended to measure the
                   true value of this mass drying operation for a
                   wide variety of materials.

Abstract           The occurrence of fungal mycelia on fescoes in
                   churches in Florence was investigated both
                   before and after the severe floods of November
                   1966, The distribution of mycelia was studied
                   by placing a small piece of adhesive tape on
                   the surface, removing it and examining it
                   under the microscope. Mycelial filaments were
                   spread on the surface and connected to
                   particles of pigment. Species of fungi were
                   identified by standard cultural tests. Before
                   the floods, fungal growth, particularly of
                   Penicillium, Mucor and Stemphylium were
                   present; after the floods, fungal growth,
                   particularly of Penicillium and to a lesser
                   extent of Mucor and Aspergillus, increased
                   considerably. A fungicidal deravation of
                   nystation in water (concentration 10-100
                   g/ml), followed by ammonium carbonate
                   solution, gave excellent results.

Abstract           In January of 1979, a large collection of rare
                   old books at Oxford University was soaked by
                   water from a burst pipe. The 200 books most
                   affected were stored frozen. Tests at Havwell
                   produced the most suitable drying
                   technique--to dry them fifty at a time in a
                   vacuum chamber on shelves, with Silica Gel
                   (dessicant) and thymol at 745 mm Hg. The
                   drying time was found to be proportional to
                   its volume divided by its surface area; the
                   largest book dried in a few days without any
                   damage other than that caused by the initial
                   soaking. After drying, the pages were not
                   fragile and the books could be handled without
                   risk.

Abstract           The author observed in Florence that the paper

                   was made from pure fibers and with a minimum
                   amount of chemicals and, therefore, they were
                   still in good condition. Paper from the 18th
                   century onward needed more attention. Measures
                   undertaken in Florence for preservation of
                   flood affected library material are also
                   described.

Source Title       Natural History, v.78, n.4 August 1969
Page               46-55
Abstract           The history and the geography and climate of
                   the flooded area are discussed. Since 1333,
                   there has been a moderate flood every 24
                   years, a major flood every 26 years, and a
                   massive flood every 100 years. The bed of the
                   Arno is still filled with the debris of the
                   1966 flood and has never been dredged. No
                   money has been appropriated for reforestation,
                   for the construction of water impoundments,
                   for dredging the Arno or caring for the land
                   as has been recommended throughout the history
                   of the area. "Those who cannot remember the
                   past are condemned to repeat it."

Abstract           The flood-damaged books in the Corning Glass
                   Center were frozen, explained Mrs. Carolyn
                   Horton, to keep mold from forming or ink from
                   smudging. The books must then be individually
                   defrosted, dried and restored, at a cost
                   estimated at $200 each.

Abstract           A fire in the Concordia University Archives
                   (Montreal) took firefighters twelve hours to
                   extinguish. The Archives had previously
                   suffered a serious budget cut and there was no
                   director, no essential records program, no
                   disaster plan and no smoke or fire detection
                   equipment. This article describes salvage
                   preparations and operations, drying methods,
                   sterilization, restoration, and gives several
                   recommendations to facilitate salvage
                   operations.

Abstract           Mystic Seaport Museum is located on the coast,
                   on low ground, and has basements. The museum
                   has therefore generated a Hurricane
                   Preparation Bill and a Recovery Manual. The
                   former is updated annually. This includes a
                   check and restocking of long term supplies,
                   and servicing of auxiliary generators and
                   pumps, as well as verification of arrangements
                   of rental trucks needed for evacuation. The
                   latter, designed to complement the former, was
                   authored by Heidi Mikisch and Marc Williams.

Abstract           This study reviews the literature of library
                   conservation written before and after the
                   Florence flood of November 4, 1966 to
                   determine the nature of changes and the impact
                   of the flood on the development of library
                   conservation. It is  concluded that most of
                   the changes which occurred after the flood had
                   begun prior to it. The flood brought
                   conservation to public attention at a time
                   when funds were available to exploit that
                   attention, with the result that progess was
                   accelerated rather than a new direction being
                   taken.

Abstract           The Northeast Document Conservation Center has
                   a simple checklist for setting up a disaster
                   plan, available through its Field Service
                   Office, which can be filled in fairly readily.
                   It requires pulling together names and phone
                   numbers of staff members, emergency services,
                   sources of supplies and lists of priorities
                   for salvage. The checklist can serve as the
                   basis for major portions of a local disaster
                   plan. The article gives guidelines for writing
                   a disaster plan.

Abstract           Florence eight days after the flood is
                   described, and a resume given of some of the
                   projects in which the author participated. The
                   first permanent technical-conservation
                   laboratory in Florence was established at the
                   Pallazzo Davanzati in February 1967. It
                   includes microchemical, chemical and general
                   conservation laboratories and a room for
                   conservation of wooden objects. Equipment is
                   described. Efflorescent salts formed under
                   frescoes in churches which were being dried
                   inside with propane gas jets. These included
                   calcium nitrate, potassium nitrate and calcium
                   phosphate. Salts brought from the interior by
                   capillary action as the surface dried formed
                   crystals which pushed the paint layers of the
                   fresco away from the surface. Covering with
                   plastic sheeting to prevent evaporation on the
                   front, and drying from the rear whenever
                   possible remedied this effect. Illustrated.
