From The Jakarta Post:
The Banyumas Library and Archive Agency in Central Java has created a mechanism they call the Dropbox to sterilize books with ultraviolet (UV) light.
Shaped like a filing cabinet, the Dropbox measures 130 by 75 by 75 centimeters. It consists of six drawers, and each fits 14 books. The books are warmed for 24 hours at 40 degrees Celsius and exposed to UV rays for 10 minutes. The books are arranged so that each receives an equal amount of radiation.
Dropbox is still under trial. The agency has used it for one week to “quarantine” returned books.
