Disaster Proofing Heritage Collections
– the Blue Shield Australia & DISACT Symposium 2010

Disaster Proofing Heritage Collections – the Blue Shield Australia & DISACT Symposium 2010 is a one-day event on 6 May 2010 at the National Library of Australia. It will encompass two themes;

  • Regional Disaster Preparedness for Heritage Collections and
  • The Risk Management of Energy-Efficient, Heritage Collection Storage.

It will be the highlight event for Blue Shield Australia’s annual month-long May Day campaign to remind the Australian cultural heritage sector to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. The event will also be promoted as part of Information Awareness Month. The theme of Information Awareness Month 2010 is Access across the generations. The goals of both Blue Shield Australia (BSA) and DISACT are aligned with these themes in that both are committed to the prevention and preparedness planning required to maintain access for as many generations as possible.
