English abstract

Libraries are important institutions which contribute to the development of science, art, technology by their library materials. Library materials which exist in the reading room and storage areas face various threats oriented by environmental, disasters and human risks. Without precautionary measures, these hazards can turn into risks and these risks cause material damage. Therefore, the factors giving rise to deterioration of library materials should be identified as a priority and library employees and beneficiaries should be protected from any kind of damage. Libraries of the Faculty of Theology that represent major educational institutions around the globe contain significant number of books, manuscripts and microfilms. Collection management, protection from adverse climatic conditions and disaster risks need to be addressed principally. The aim of this study is to offer protective measures for Faculty of Theology Libraries and develop a preventive model.
