Mold mars 600,000 MU volumes stored at off-campus facility

“University of Missouri Libraries officials face tough choices as they consider what to do with 600,000 mold-covered books at an off-campus storage facility. The volumes are stored at Subtera, an underground storage facility off Stadium Boulevard in north Columbia. Jim Cogswell, director of MU Libraries, said library staff discovered the mold problem in October.

An on-campus environmental health and safety officer has been studying the issue since then and last week issued a report that identified the mold as aspergillus and/or penicillium — common types of mold that don’t pose a health threat, MU spokesman Christian Basi said.” (via Columbia Daily Tribune)
