The Tulane University Libraries suffered devastating losses as a result of flooding after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Almost ten years later, construction began to add new floors onto the main library building and return replaced and re-mediated materials to the library. During the course of construction, several minor and one major water events occurred and this presentation provides details of that recovery.
