Información Científica Internaciona (ICI) is first Mexican company formed by professional librarians and archivists to serve and cater to the libraries of Mexico and beyond..

These videos, from late 2008, showcase a couple of contraptions used in the cleaning and maintenance of books. The English translates to Automatic Cleaning System and it looks like they took the technology of the car wash and applied it to books. Oh, and in the video above and they added a little lift to a ladder to get the books down safely from the higher shelves.

Seems destined to be a classic instructional video.
