Tragedy Response Initiative Task Force

The Tragedy Response Initiative Task Force is responsible for 1) creating and/or compiling material for ready accessibility by archivists who are facing a sudden tragedy and 2) exploring the feasibility of creating a standing body within SAA that would update documentation as needed and serve as a volunteer tragedy response team.

The Task Force is currently drafting templates, examples, and guidelines for institutions who need assistance responding to a disaster.  In the meantime, if your institution has an immediate need for the documentation (understanding that these may still be in draft form), please contact the Task Force at
