Archival Materials - Restricted Access
The bulk of materials in the E. L. Quarantelli Resource Collection can be found in archival holdings, which comprises materials collected during field research and other original research data. These materials include, but are not limited to interview transcripts, surveys, photographs and audio-visual materials of disaster events, and supplemental materials collected at disaster sites (e.g. local newspapers, meeting minutes, fliers, and memorabilia).
Due to the sensitive nature of these materials, DRC's archival holdings are currently classed as restricted and users must apply for access. To access materials, please click the link in the sidebar for more information.
