Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the microfungi which contamined the surface of the books and the atmosphere of the library in Health Services Vocational School . The samples of the library air were taken by using open petri plate method and the samples from the surface of the books were taken by swabbing with the moistened sterile swab sticks. As a result of research, 14 different microfungal species were obtained belonging to Alternaria, Aspergillus, Chaetomium, Cladosporium and Penicillium genera. The genera of microfungi the most abundant in terms of the qualitative were Aspergillus, Penicillium and Cladosporium. Quantitatively, Aspergillus was found as the most abundant. Maximumcolony was formed by Aspergillus niger in the microfungal species. The microfungal species which were obtained from the atmosphere of the library and from the surface of the books show great similarity.
