The germ for this site began with a service called Hypatia, an on-line system funded by NEH and produced by the Preservation Services of the Pittsburgh Regional Library Center. The initial list of resources in this database was taken from the Philadelphia Area Emergency Resources List compiled by Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts with funding from The William Penn Foundation. The original design of this site was by the Preservation Department of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, The Johns Hopkins University. The database information is maintained by Michigan State University Libraries and the California Preservation Program. Many other institutions and individuals have also contributed to the success of this website, providing information on suppliers and services for disaster recovery. This site is now hosted and maintained by FAIC on CoOL. Experts in many arenas of material culture conservation have also contributed to this site and can provide assistance in the event of a disaster.
Please help this resource grow by contributing services, experts, and supplies you are aware of in your region.
