Video: Off-site Shelving Solutions Protect Library’s Collection

10 Jul 2015

The Storage Team helped Gettysburg College’s library staff protect the library’s historic collection, provide for safe and convenient retrieval, and free up space for other uses — all while avoiding the expense and undesirable appearance of an addition.

The solution combines off-site shelving solutions with other mobile systems and perforated shelving to create archival storage for the library’s Special Collections, including thousands of rare manuscripts, maps, and other items. Moving shelves (sometimes called shelves on rails) allowed staff to maximize their storage space, which freed up space for other uses. Read more about the project here.
