In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, my graduate student and I recently applied for and received a small travel grant from the National Hazards Center,
related to the study of facility management and disaster recovery:
Querying facility management teams: Document preservation and debris removal for cultural collections
Responding to Preferred Topics:
Vital, cultural, and historic record preservation
Debris removal and disposal
Via this email I am requesting your assistance.
We plan to contact libraries, art galleries, art museums, other types of museums, performing arts facilities, theaters, universities, etc. in and around the New York City area.
We especially want to talk to the persons who manage the facilities so that I may setup data collection there (questionnaire and focus group).
If you happen to have any contacts at such facilities, that you are willing to share I would really appreciate it.
Since it is a “quick response” grant,
I hope you can send the contact info at your earliest convenience.
Thank you so very much for your consideration.
