Campus Off-site Library Archives

Preserve Information for Generations

Libraries and archives are entrusted with a lot of responsibility. They organize and preserve knowledge for researchers. Library and archive professionals often curate and conserve collections under significant space and budget constraints.  Based on this responsibility, they maximize the usage of their storage space.

Expand Campus Archives Storage Space

Space is a concern for institutions that need to maintain and expand their collections. In addition, institutions must offer more open, flexible workspace such as collaborative work areas, classrooms, and meeting rooms. These institutions face a difficult challenge.  They need to fit an increasing amount of irreplaceable book collections, records, and other materials into a smaller storage area.

Moving seldom-accessed reference materials to an off-site storage facility is an excellent storage solution.   This frees up space in campus libraries, public libraries, and other institutions.

High Bay Storage Option
Sample Savings of Using Archival Storage

Campus Archives – Change to ‘just-in-time’ delivery

A high-bay shelving system maximizes the use of vertical space. Shelving can be easily adjusted based on book size or box type to condense collections. Thereby maximizing the campus archive storage.

A smaller facility can be built when a high-bay system is compacted to eliminate empty aisle space.  Which results in decreased operational costs.

A mobile system allows more volumes to be stored. The items remain accessible and organized, while significant capacity is gained.
