Natural Disasters and Libraries

Art Campus flooded

Here is a link to some pictures of University of Iowa.  There are several pictures of volunteers move items from the Special Collections area of the library to the upper stories, but still, books and water is heartbreaking.  Not as sad however as people losing their homes to the floodwaters.  So far, the library at UI is not flooded, but many other areas of the campus are flooded.  Here is the UI’s Flicker photostream and their blog with updates on the campus and flooding.
