From Cape Talk 567 AM:
Ujala Satgoor, the head of UCT Libraries says approximately 75% of the archival materials salvaged from the Jagger Reading Room are “hugely recoverable” while the other 25% will need extra work and treatment.
Volunteers, staff, and students have been working on an ongoing salvage operation at the Jagger Reading Room, which was severely damaged by wildfires in April.
Satgoor says it took 17 days to clear out archival materials housed within the Jagger Reading Room basements.
The university’s officials have been using a triage tent that was erected on campus to process the materials and assess the extent of the damages thereof.
