Description

Title:Disaster is in the Eye of the Beholder
Author(s):Pionke, JJ
Subject(s):Disaster
Singapore
Uganda
Geographic Coverage:Uganda, Singapore
Abstract:This chapter explores preservation and disaster issues in Singapore and Uganda from the point of view of the author’s volunteer experiences in the summer of 2012. This is a snapshot of how two very different institutions, on different sides of the world, preserve materials and prepare for disaster, the many obstacles they encounter, and how they work with and through those obstacles. Preservation and disaster concepts are briefly discussed with the main focus on the historical context of the cultural institutions of education and the access to and preservation of their materials.
