Introduction: During the library loan process, the printed resources can be a carrier of pathogenic bacteria. In this study, it was tried to compare the Bacterial Contamination Rates and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern in printed resources of a hospital and a non-hospital library. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study. Returning books from the Al-Zahra hospital library and library of Sciences faculty of Isfahan University provides the research community. The sample size, 96 cases, was…

Identification of Pathogenic Bacteria from Public Libraries via Proteomics Analysis

The utility of proteomics in identifying environmental pathogenic bacteria for specific public health risk evaluations is demonstrated and warrant follow up studies to assess the potential health risks of identified pathogens.
