When the earthquake hit Haiti in early 2010 it was clear that in addition to the devastating effect on the population, a great deal of the country’s cultural heritage had been destroyed. IFLA reacted to this natural disaster by offering help and training for the libraries in Haiti. Under the leadership of IFLA’s Preservation and Conservation Section and the Blue Shield, the Ark project was created to provide a place for such assistance and training. The centre will enable the population of Haiti to independently look after its written cultural heritage and rebuild its identity.
This session provides an overview on the current status of the project.
Presenter: Danielle Mincio, Chair/Treasurer of IFLA’s Preservation and Conservation Section
