We report the presence of bacterial colonization in library environment and on the books housed, performing morphological and bacterial molecular analyses. Isolated bacterial colonies were characterised by 16S rRNA locus and ITS (16S-23S rRNA Intergenic Transcribed Spacer) amplification and sequencing. The results of SEM observation and molecular analysis showed the prevalent presence of bacteria belonging to the family Micrococcaceae.

Abstract

We report the presence of bacterial colonization in library environment and on the books housed, performing morphological and bacterial molecular analyses. Isolated bacterial colonies were characterised by 16S rRNA locus and ITS (16S-23S rRNA Intergenic Transcribed Spacer) amplification and sequencing. The results of SEM observation and molecular analysis showed the prevalent presence of bacteria belonging to the family Micrococcaceae. We distinguished Kocuria rosea, Arthrobacter nicotianae, Micrococcus luteus and Curtobacterium flaccumfaciens which shows high cellulolytic activity.
