Shireburn Software, has today announced its support of New Leaf, the Voluntary Organisation whose objective is to preserve the books at the National Library and promote the use of public libraries. Shireburn has made a donation to cover the purchase of specialist vacuum cleaners for volunteers to clean books on the premises.
“Many of the books will be removed from their shelves for the first time in 200 years,” said Monique Chambers, chair, New Leaf. “These vacuums allow us to safely clean surface dirt while ascertaining their condition for further attention before digitising them for global consumption and future generations.”
“Shireburn is all about knowing what information you have and where, digitising data and document management, so we see New Leaf as a perfect partner for our CSR efforts,” said John de Giorgio, CEO, Shireburn Software. “These machines will allow more volunteers to be able to work at the same time on this mammoth task.”
