Our collections, our buildings, and our equipment make it possible for us to do what we do, but these things are subject to the insidious hunger of creepy-crawlies, opportunistic or uninformed people, and the overwhelming destructive power of nature. The impact of Hurricane Katrina and the issues in the Heritage Health Index report released in December 2005 underscore the importance of addressing this reality. This bundle of Technical Leaflets will help you identify the risks that your organization’s assets face and put together a plan to successfully manage them.
