Recovering Our History: LSU Special Collections after Hurricane Katrina HURRICANE KATRINA EMERGENCY GRANTS

As a leader among archival institutions in the state, many smaller repositories turned to the Louisiana State University (LSU) for help in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. The staff in LSU Libraries Special Collections, who are trained in collection disaster preparedness and conservation, assisted multiple institutions with wet and damaged collections. LSU is providing long-term freezer or climate controlled library stack storage for the Louisiana State Museum Jazz Archives, the New Orleans Archdiocese Archives and associated sacramental documents, minutes, and other historical records from small churches that no longer physically exist in New Orleans and St. Bernard Parishes, archival records of the only newspaper in St. Bernard Parish, and the entire photographic archives from the New Orleans Port Authority.
