Public Access to Streaming Video on Coping with Water Damage

In response to the severe flooding in the Midwest, Heritage Preservation is requesting funds to make the DVD segment on water damage from the NEH-funded Field Guide to Emergency Response accessible online. Water is the most common cause of damage to museum, library, and archive collections, and the 10-minute segment combines hands-on demonstrations of salvage techniques with concise advice from leading preservation experts. Practical tips on safety, simple equipment, and salvage priorities also make the video a useful guide to help the public rescue family photographs and other heirlooms. Project costs include converting the DVD file, creating a special page on the Heritage Emergency National Task Force Web page, hosting the segment on a streaming video server for the next six months, and publicizing its availability.
