Resource Suggestion

I'd like to suggest adding the Institutional Assets and Monuments of Venezuela (IAM Venezuela) as a resource.

They are a group working to preserve cultural heritage and supply alerts about archives and other institutions that are in danger of destruction through neglect, civil conflict, vandalism ect. For example, there have been recent attacks on records:

My non-profit group the Arc/k Project is currently working with them to provide emergency digital preservation instructions for archives and museums. On a side note, any help regarding spanish emergency preservation documents or archivist contacts in Venezuela would me much appreciated. - Michael Conyers, Digital Archivist - The Arc/k Project -
