Disaster Preparedness

Basic Information

Disasters are the worst enemy of preserving library collections as they can destroy a collection in a moment. The National Diet Library formulated the "National Diet Library Disaster Preparedness Guideline" in February 2010 as the basic principle of protecting library collections from disasters.




NOTICE: This is a simple manual for treating library materials in general based on the cases in the National Diet Library. When you treat rare books or severely damaged materials, we recommend you to consult expert in conservation treatment.
