Warm Greetings from UNESCO International Centre for Documentary Heritage!

Record is an excellent delivering channel for understanding the era and its culture at the time. In this regard, some of them with historical significance are called "Documentary Heritage," and we strive to preserve and use them to learn about the past.

However, many cases of neglecting and/or damaging Documentary Heritage still have been made despite an effort to preserve and use it. It does not mean materials damage. It means that a channel exploring the memory and culture of the era is shutting down.

In this line, ICDH strives to provide guidelines for Documentary Heritage at risk for all the states and agencies with potential risks. As the first step for this programme, ICDH invited professionals worldwide relating to the prevention and conservation of the collection as a contributor to the Guideline for safeguarding the endangered Documentary Heritage.

And this year's Guidelines focus on valuable sources against natural disasters.

Ms. Claire McGuire shares her expertise and experiences with you, and her contribution will inspire you to find the way to minimize damage during disasters for safeguarding documentary heritage for your organization. Please kindly find the attached contribution.
