Explore the importance of the first 24–28 hours in
responding to water emergencies that impact works on paper, including the
benefits and implications of a variety of responses (keeping objects wet, air
drying, freezing, etc.). Presenters share real-life examples of water
emergencies, responses taken, lessons learned, and tips for next steps beyond
the 24–48 hour response period. This webinar focuses on paper, but not
paintings, drawings, etc.
