Purpose: To identify factors damaging archival as well as library materials held in government departments repositories in order to develop criteria for preservation practices consistent with international standards, diminishing the costs of future disinfecting and repair, in particular damages caused by human factors.
Method/Research Design: Data resulted from the monitoring of and sampling from external repositories of 17 departments and environmental conditions of 63 repositories was pollution were identified and compared with CFU. Suggestions were made for the improvement of the situation the organization. The temperature, humidity, light of the repositories was measured. Also, the number of micro organisms in the air were examined and checked against the standards then tagged and analyzed using SPSS application. As the data did not follow normal distribution, Spearman correlation was employed to check factors such as light and temperature with the presence of fungi.
Results: Standards of light. Humidity, and temperature are not met in the majority of repositories. Lack of meaningful relation between humidity and fungi is an indication of the fact that humidity in 87% of repositories is less than standard.
