Disaster Salvage and Response:
A Special Issue of
The WAAC Newsletter
WAAC devoted the September 2005 (vol 27, no 3) issue of the WAAC Newsletter to articles on salvage and response.

In response to recent events, WAAC is making this special issue available online (as a PDF file). While this online version will be available only for a limited time, print copies are available at any time. See back issues

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.

Print copies are available. See back issues


WAAC Member Survey

It's your time to tell us what you like, love or loathe about WAAC. You will find a combination of multiple choice questions and open-ended questions that will allow you to respond in detail. The survey should take between 10 - 15 minutes to complete. This is an opportunity to share your thoughts about how WAAC does its work, and what directions it should consider for the future - your input will be very valuable. We look forward to hearing from you.

WAAC Newsletter
WAAC Newsletter Now Includes Video

Authors who are submitting an article for publication in the WAAC newsletter are now invited to include a video component, if appropriate. The video component is intended to illustrate a specific section of a written article - serving as a "video illustration". In this sense it is analogous to a traditional figure (a drawing or photograph) in a written article. See Video Submission Guidelines


All back issues of the WAAC Newsletter through Vol. 34, number 3, are now available online and we have now returned to the policy of waiting 6 months after publication to post an issue online, in deference to those who actually pay for the Newsletter.

Starting with volume 25 (2003), the Newsletter is presented in PDF, and you can read either individual articles and columns, or the entire issue as in the printed version.

Feature articles are best read as spreads, for illustration placement, etc., however they are posted as single pages so that they can be printed easily.)

Hard copies are still available
