Latest on the National Library of Wales fire: this article on the BBC website which outlines the extent of the damage to collections and gives an insight into working practices and salvage processes.  £5 million of damage was done and, sad to report, some archives were irreparably damaged by water and smoke.  Lightly damaged material has been salvaged and we are waiting to hear which collections were seriously damaged.  It is a shame that any unique collections were lost, though it could have been so much worse.
