Abstracts
Regardless of how library materials get wet – during a flood caused by a burst water pipe, extinguishing a fire using water, leaky roof or any other way – water is one of the greatest enemies of documents and books kept in archives and libraries around the world. Damage to library materials caused by floods, from the perspective of conservation and restoration, stands out from the usual damage caused by standard conditions. The consequences of this type of damage can be more extreme, and result in a complete destruction of library materials. In 2015, a flash flood at the Juraj Šižgorić City Library in Šibenik resulted in extensive damage to a large quantity of library materials that needed to be saved, adequately taken care of, and processed in the shortest possible timeframe. Situations in which large quantities of materials are suddenly damaged require the employment of a large number of people, a large space sufficient for the processing of damaged materials, and considerable funds. In this case, during a heavy rainstorm, the entire basement, with the audiovisual department, gallery, newspaper library and book depository, was flooded, and a significant amount of library materials was lost, as well as some priority items from the Rara collection. Based on the data collected, protection measures were proposed that need to be carried out in accordance with IFLA principles for the care and handling of library materials as prevention for possible similar situations in the future.
