It Is Everywhere: Handling a Mold Outbreak in a Library's High-Density Storage Collection
Alexis Braun Marks (Eastern Michigan University, USA) and Eric Owen (Eastern Michigan University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-8624-3.ch014
In early 2012, mold was found on materials stored in the high-density automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) at Eastern Michigan University, with remediation beginning in late 2013. This chapter will outline the timeline of discovery and eventual remediation of the mold infestation. The authors will discuss the stakeholders within the library and other offices on campus involved with the response planning for closure, cleanup, and reopening of the ASRS, as well as the development of processes for collection intake to mitigate a future outbreak. The chapter will conclude with lessons learned, takeaways for other institutions, and how Eastern Michigan University is moving forward to protect the investment made in the collection.
