Campus Library & Makerspace Storage Systems

Making Space in Libraries for Students

Many campus any libraries have become more dynamic over the past few decades. As the libraries were transforming to provide more collaborative spaces and access to advanced technology, campus leadership recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to shelving and campus library storage for the university’s collections.

Campus libraries are changing to ensure that students, faculty, and staff can feel safe and focus on learning during the COVID crisis. Spacesaver can help free up space for social distancing while still preserving collections and promoting convenient access, and we can also help reduce high-touch surfaces.

COMPACT STORAGE ON-SITE

Reduce the stacks’ footprint with high-density mobile shelving

Spacesaver’s high-density mobile shelving systems keep materials on-site in about half the space of static (non-moving) shelving This frees up space for individual study carrels, socially distant collaboration areas, or other uses Compact shelving can also delineate areas to help enforce density guidelines.  To reduce high-touch surfaces, consider powered mobile systems that allow users to open and close aisles from their personal mobile devices instead of using touchscreens

Aesthetics

Architects and designers appreciate the fact that Spacesaver is a large enough corporation to provide quality storage products yet agile enough to produce custom solutions for the customers. Our storage solutions can be easily integrated into an interior decorators design.

Flexible Spaces at a University

Spacesaver Day Use Lockers mounted on a carriage-and-rail system serve as the basis for the movable room dividers. The partitions can be pushed together at one end of the room to create a large, open space for guest speakers or other events, m they can be moved anywhe1·e along the rails to create smaller spaces for collaboration or independent work. Lockers in a variety of sizes and configurations are designed to accommodate personal belongings and students’ work in progress. The partitions also feature whiteboards and monitors to facilitate collaboration, and furniture on casters adds even more flexibility to the space.
