Recovering from disaster: the Charlton Golden Grains Museum experience
In 2012, Northern Victoria was subject to wide-spread flooding, leading to significant damage to archival collections housed in the region.

Drawing from this experience, Carolyn will reflect on lessons learnt and the primacy of disaster preparedness and planning for archival institutions and record keepers.

Blue Shield Australia – Advocating that your records are safeguard against disasters
The Blue Shield is the cultural equivalent of the Red Cross. The distinctive emblem was specified by the UNESCO’s 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict. It is also the name of the International Committee of Blue Shield (ICBS), set up in 1996 to advise UNESCO on the protection of the world’s cultural heritage threatened by wars and natural disasters. With the approval of ICBS in 2005 Blue Shield Australia (BSA) was established. BSA’s vision is to influence disaster preparedness and emergency management in Australia in order to ensure the preservation of cultural heritage within Australia’s areas of responsibility and influence.
This paper will give a brief introduction to the aims and objective of the BSA and will outline basic disaster preparedness strategies. These mitigation measures will help any records manager to reduce the risks of damage or loss of records in their care. Ideally these measure should be integrated into everyday working structures and activities and lead to the establishment of a local network/arrangement for assistance between similar organisations and emergency services with the ultimate aim of hardwiring the relationship and building a community which ensure our cultural heritage becomes ‘disaster resilient’.
