  11. 11. Central Library of UNS: Modern multimedia equipment • • • • • • • New equipment for cleaning, protection and digitalisation of the library funds within the shortest time-limit and in a very secure way. Ability to provide a significantly larger number of users with access to them and their utilisation. The expenses regarding the acquisition of a large number of text-books would be reduced - the most frequent titles could be promptly digitalised and offered to the readers in this form. Reduced damage of library funds that occurs in many cases while photocopying Protection of the health and longevity of books, as well as of all people that deal with books, including library employees. Additional effect of environmental protection (reduction of gaseous material and chemical use in the process of book protection) Automatic devices and robot scanners minimise mechanical human labour and the effect maximised.
