Photographic materials have complex structures, specialized needs, and inherent preservation vulnerabilities; salvaging these materials safely after a disaster incident can sometimes be more challenging than salvaging collections that are primarily paper.  This workshop will address disaster response with a focus on photographic collections.  Presenters will share practical procedures for efficient initial response and stabilization of a disaster scene and will give specific guidelines on salvaging and caring for photographs following a disaster. The session will conclude with a brief, hands-on exercise in which participants will have a chance to witness and practice simulated salvage of photographic materials.
