discuss your plans for a basement library with Alex Magoun at the
David Sarnoff Library (I'd be happy to introduce you.) The RCA
Laboratories building has been there since 1941, yet it was just last
year when a large amount of archival documents being stored in the
basement was damaged when the building flooded at a never-before seen
level. You can read about it at
http://www.davidsarnoff.org/flood.html. Most but not all of the
archival material was restored to useable but not undamaged
condition, at a huge expense.
