Preservation and Conservation


In preservation and conservation of literature heritage and documents of the library, the activities are operated to prevent damage more than the ordinary. Even if they are damaging badly, literature maintenance tools are used in order to prevent the continuing damage.

Digitization Project

The literature heritage that is collected and maintained by the Yangon National Library is being converted to digital format as e-books, e-periodical since 2011.

Preventing from the Disasters

Setting up the fire alarm system, organizing the fire-brigade within the department, placing the fire hose reel cabinet and fire extinguisher for every zone, determining the priority for the rare literature collections to carry out if there is any unexpected accident or disaster are arranging for the rare collections and documents that are preserved at the library since an ancient time.
