The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s (ASO) Music Library had been slowly accumulating material for years.

The symphony, officially more than 70 years old, had become a fixture in the community. The library, in the same space for nearly 30 years, was in need of a refresh. Overstuffed shelves were crowded with material, there was little work area, and the librarian’s back office was being used as a storage room.


The library, relatively small at just over 1,100 square feet, was furnished with a Mechanical Assist (MA) High-Density Storage System. Over a dozen sections of the existing “retro look” shelving – which the library staff loved – was re-purposed for inclusion in the new space.

An orderly library is not only great for finding things, but it can bring a certain amount of peace and tranquility. It’s a concept with which musicians are intimately familiar.

“This room is where our music lives. We spend a lot of time in here. We needed this.”

- Principal Librarian Rebecca Beavers

About Robert

Stuff matters to Robert. In fact, you could say he knows stuff inside and out. Literally. He played the role of "Stuffey" in our most recent P2ube Video series. So chronicling Patterson Pope's battles with stuff problems was a good fit. In his free time he enjoys collecting staplers, ball point pens and sugar packets.
