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.
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), as well as a collection of new information and reprinted materials from a number of sources.
While this online version will be available only for a limited time, 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 the
