@UTiSchool helping flood victims salvage documents & heirlooms following Central Texas severe weather

AUSTIN, Texas — Conservators and students at The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information are available to provide advice and limited disaster recovery assistance to help this weekend’s flood victims salvage damaged family treasures.

Wet papers and photographs, textiles, scrapbooks, books and other sentimental objects should be frozen, if possible, and not thrown out, the conservators say.

Losing such items can be devastating after disasters such as floods. Luckily, many things can be salvaged with proper guidance.

Flood victims are urged to contact the iSchool for advice on conservation at 512-903-9564 orresponse@ischool.utexas.edu.

Faculty members and students also plan to host salvage workshops in areas most affected by flooding during the next few weeks and will schedule those sessions soon. Please contactresponse@ischool.utexas.edu if you are interested in hosting or attending a salvage session.

Faculty members are also available for media interviews to discuss document conservation.
