Don’t Panic: Emergency Response & Salvage Workshop
Source: Museum SOS – American Museum of Natural History
In May 2004, a conference entitled Museum SOS: Strategies for Emergency Response and Salvage was held at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City as part of the 19th Annual Meeting of the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC). Over 200 people attended, from institutions worldwide. The high level of interest in the topic was reflected in the number of participants from outside the natural science collections community; from art and cultural institutions, biological repositories, and government agencies.
