Introduction to what and why the LIBRARIUM

The LIBRARIUM is an ongoing program with a set of highly-coupled and mutually supportive projects intended to produce and to maintain, in perpetuity, a resource of foundational and applied knowledge and toolsets consisting of methodologies and protocols, for a variety of technologies that are deemed to be critical and valuable to a society that may find itself in a situation of need due to a variety of disruptive physical and social events.

In essence, the LIBRARIUM is the knowledge-technology equivalent of the Svalbard Seed Vault for botany and agriculture. Consisting of archived resources in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.), it is organized around practical applications. It is intended to provide readily-accessible “stepping-off points and staging-levels for members of a future society to literally rebuild, resume and continue on, in manners that will be beneficial to a future renaissance period, even in the event of severe breakdowns in the social and economic order due to whatever reasons, of which aggravated and extreme climate change, the consequences of wars and conflicts, and other natural and/or human-induced events may be the most likely and the most devastating.

Within the Librarium Program is the Mirnova Project, itself comprising several STEM and STEAM oriented education and proto-research activities of technical and social natures.
