The Belarusian Research Institute of Records Management and Archival Studies (BelNIIDAD) has released methodological practical recommendations for the protection of archival documents on paper from mold fungi.
The Guidance aims to increase the efficiency of protecting archival objects and people in contact with them from mold fungi. The recommendations describe the properties of microscopic fungi, the negative consequences of their life activity, and introduce the methods of mycological safety for archival documents and archive repositories. The recommendations are supplemented with photo illustrations and explanations of the terms used.
The guidance is designed for a wide range of employees in the archival industry. This can also be used to address issues of mycosafety in libraries and museums.
