No... backup, in anticipation of damage to what you own is not permitted.
As for replacing lost copies...
Section 108 reads: (captialization added)
(d) The rights of reproduction and distribution under this section apply to a copy, made from the collection of a library or archives where the user makes his or her request OR FROM THAT OF ANOTHER LIBRARY OR ARCHIVES
I read that to mean that if MY library owned a copy that was lost, we could BORROW another library's copy to make my replacement copy.
Of course, ALL the other provisions still apply... yada yada yada
