On disaster planning, this 1942 US government report "The protection of cultural resources against the hazards of war" is a fascinating short read, interesting both for recommendations and prejudices

This year’s conference went tote bag-free, in keeping with its theme of sustainability. let us know that last year’s bag and contents weighed 3 1/2 lbs., or cumulatively about the weight of one adult hippopotamus.

Am now thinking about archival collections built w oil money...another way of approaching the relationship btwn archives and climate change, to be sure. Can take lessons from excellent recent work on collections / universities built on $$ from slavery.
