The good people at the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information are making themselves available to advise flood victims on how to best salvage important family heirlooms.
Via UT: “Wet papers and photographs, textiles, scrapbooks, books and other sentimental objects should be frozen, if possible, and not thrown out, the conservators say.”
For further instruction, “Flood victims are urged to contact the iSchool for advice on conservation at 512-903-9564 or email@example.com.”
Also, the faculty and students are planning to host workshops (in the regions most damaged by floods) on how to salvage these items. For more information, please go here.
