In light of the current flooding in Louisiana, we want to make sure that those of you in the affected areas have access to the help and resources you may need to keep your collections safe.

If you have experienced flooding affecting their collections, you can call our emergency number at 504.300.9478 or the National Heritage Responders (a group of trained preservation/conservation professionals who can provide advice and in some cases be deployed to provide hands-on help) at 202.661.8068. There is no charge for either of these services.

There are more emergency numbers available here:

You can also reach out directly to Annie Peterson, LYRASIS Preservation Services Librarian, via phone, email or skype. We know some cellular service is down in areas, so please feel free to contact her any way you can.
